ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the mechanisms of constitutional change in New York. The New York State Senate, on June 5, 2007, passed a bill that would amend the New York State Constitution, which will permit constitutional amendments to be proposed by popular initiative. The author claims that the themes that contributed to the power of constitutional change in the state also offer significant insights into constitutional change and prospective on the prospects for the embracement of the initiation of suggested constitutional amendments.
