The Seventeenth Amendment

A recent post by Jonathan Adler Zywicki at Volokh reminded me that I never recommended Todd J. Zywicki's excellent articles on the Seventeenth Amendment -- that's the one that provided for the direct election of Senators by the people, rather than by state legislatures, as Article I, Section 3 originally provided: History of the Seventeenth Amendment and Its Implications for Current Reform Proposals and Senators and Special Interests: A Public Choice Analysis of the Seventeenth Amendment.
