    A BILL
    Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United
    States relating to contributions and expenditures in-
    tended to affect elections.

    Be it enacted (???????_FAIL Resolved)
    by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

    THIS IS HOW to WRITE an AMENDMENT

    The Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their
    adopting the Constitution expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction
    or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive
    clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of
    public confidence in the government will best insure the beneficent ends
    of its institution—
    RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring,
    That the following articles be proposed to the legislatures of the United States,
    several states, as amendments to the constitution of the United States,
    all or any of which articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said
    legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said
    Constitution, viz.:
    ARTICLES in addition to, and amendment of, the Constitution of the
    United States of America, proposed by Congress and ratified by the
    Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth article of the
    original Constitution.
