Birmingham--Advocates of a new state constitution will make their case this weekend at a Birmingham workshop - part of statewide campaign on the issue. The group Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform has supported drafting a new constitution for almost 10 years. The idea recently received a boost from Democratic Congressman Artur Davis. Davis has made a convention to rewrite the state constitution a centerpiece of his gubernatorial campaign. He tells WBHM's Andrew Yeager the current 1901 Alabama constitution ties the stateâs hands in an array of areas.
