Model Continuity of Congress Statute
This is a model continuity of Congress statute. States with constitutional provisions similar to U.S. Const. art. I, Section 7 could easily modify the act in light of their state constitutional and parliamentary nuances.
My opening article appears at: Tillman, Model, 4 PIERCE LAW REVIEW 191 (2006). Professor Sanford V. Levinson comments on my Model at: Levinson, Comment, Assuring Continuity of Government, 4 PIERCE LAW REVIEW 201 (2006). I reply to his comment at: Tillman, Reply, Overruling INS v. Chadha, 4 PIERCE LAW REVIEW 207 (2006).
Since publication, Pierce Law Review has been renamed University of New Hampshire Law Review.
