David Rivkin, former White House counsel and noted authority on constitutional law, will appear on the Fox & Friends early morning television show on Thursday, July 8 to discuss the possibility of a Maryland Constitutional Convention. The program airs from 6:45 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. (EDT).

A Maryland Constitutional Convention Question will be on the November 2 ballot that will allow Maryland voters to say whether they want a convention to consider amendments to the Maryland Constitution. Maryland is one of 14 states with a requirement to make voters decide at least once a generation whether to start over with regard to the constitution.

David Rivkin is the lead attorney in the 20-state lawsuit against the sweeping health care reform passed by the Obama Administration. In a 2009 op-ed piece for The Wall Street Journal, Rivkin argued that the states—and through them the people—should be given a greater role in the constitutional amendment process.
