Miller Baker’s recent Congressional testimony was cited in an op-ed piece published in the March 11 issue of The Wall Street Journal. Mr. Baker urged Congress to re-examine the presidential succession amendment during his testimony regarding a H.J. Res. 67, which would allow state governors to make necessary appointments to fill House vacancies in the event that catastrophe caused widespread vacancies in the House of Representatives. Since Mr. Baker's testimony, the Washington Post and CNN reported that Representative Brian Baird (D-WA), the sponsor of H.J. Res. 67, has asked the congressional leadership to establish a joint House-Senate task force to examine presidential succession issues, and that House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO) has agreed with Rep. Baird's suggestion.
