Abbott’s amendments are a hodgepodge of irrelevancies, curiosities and apparent efforts to return America to the golden years of the Hoover administration

A short list of laws that would either be drastically shrunk or invalidated entirely if Abbott got his way includes “the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the sick leave portions of the Family and Medical Leave, the Freedom of Access to Clinics Act, as well as minimum wage and maximum hour laws and labor and environmental laws.”

It’s worth noting that Abbott’s plan to effectively undo much of the twentieth century is only one part of his agenda. His other proposals include a balanced budget amendment, two amendments that appear designed to shut down regulation from agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Labor in its entirety, an expansion of state officials’ ability to sue the federal government, and proposals allowing a two-thirds supermajority of the states to “override a U.S. Supreme Court decision” or “override a federal law or regulation.”
