by Blair C. Henry JD [1] 

During our testing and refining process, twenty workshops were held in Sedona, Arizona to determine what 450 residents, balanced fairly based on gender and political persuasion, AGREED would make the BIGGEST difference in upgrading and strengthening the American democratic process.[2]

The participants then drafted, and over 75% approved, each of the following proposed constitutional amendments in less than thirty minutes.

Sedona Amendment No. 1  MONEY  

Sedona Amendment No. 2  HONESTY

Sedona Amendment No. 3  ETHICS
