Today Is Constitution Day

“On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created...”

Let’s celebrate by carefully examining one particular law found in both the U.S and State Constitutions:

“No State shall…pass any…ex post facto law or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts…” (The Constitution of the United States, Article 1—Limitations on Powers of States, Section 10).”

“No ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts…shall be passed” (The Constitution of the State of Illinois, Article I—Bill of Rights, Section 16).” 

Breaking a constitutional contract with public employees in Illinois impairs “the Obligation of Contracts.” To refresh your memory, please Click Here.

Send this message to your legislators. Thanks.
