Grievance 24 – Excessively amended constitution

States that the California constitution has been amended/revised 520 times, replacing an unpaid, biennial Legislature with a paid, 11-month Legislature that meets, writes and passes laws within a mono-party system. This excessive control imposed upon the citizens is a misuse of the democratic process. Today’s California Constitution violates both the Constitutions of the US (Article VI, Section 2) and the 1879 California Constitution (Article I, Section 3) undermining a republican form of government for California citizens.
