Proposed Amendment to 1A Fails
See here. As noted in comments, it was done via a filibuster, even though a straight up/down vote would likely fail too given the supermajority requirement (here actually explicitly stated). Another person, who apparently is some sort of legislative power expert given other writings, first got the point wrong. Then, fatuously wondered why. As if it isn't clear that it is a way to block without actually having clear responsibility. Or, maybe they are just so used to doing it that way. Opposed filibuster reform too. Shocker that.
