Texas Constitution reorganized by small Waco group

A small group of Waco men have been working for months on reorganizing the Texas Constitution, recently finishing the final draft.
Roy Walthall, leader of the project and a professor from McLennan Community College, says that since the initial Texas Constitution adopted in 1876, there has been 400 Amendments added, without any form of organization.
Mr. Walthall says that the original Constitution is "unreadable and dysfunctional". He says, they re-formatted the exact wording of the original document, but put the Amendments in a more organized and understandable format.
Mr. Walthall also say that they plan on sending the reorganized Texas Constitution to lawmakers and the public, to allow people to better understand the laws, and show the lawmakers several reforms that could be made in the future, if they choose to do so.
