National Popular Vote plan clears second chamber of 2009

by Rob Richie // Published February 25, 2009

National Popular Vote passed the Arkansas house today, 53-46. Earlier this month it passed the house in New Mexico. it's moving well in several other states.

It's three years and two days since the NPV plan was unveiled at a news conference with the leadership of National Popular Vote Common Cause and FairVote on hand with former Sen. Birch Bayh and former Congressman John Anderson. Its progress truly is remarkable.

Stay tuned. For policy wonks, out there, check out the 2009 edition of Every Vote Equal, the book about the plan that I co-authored with lead author John Koza and others.
