The Twenty-Fifth Amendment

John D. Feerick

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the serious efforts that have been made to improve the system of presidential succession by commissions, academic institutions, and a bipartisan continuity-in-government commission. For example, in 1985, the Miller Commission on Presidential Disability was appointed by the White Burkett Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia to review the country’s experience with the Twenty-fifth Amendment and to examine important issues regarding presidential health. In 1993, President Carter joined a panel known as the Working Group on Presidential Disability, which consisted of approximately fifty individuals, mainly medical experts but including some presidential historians, political scientists, public commentators. Wake Forrest University, the Continuity of Government Commission, and the Fordham University School of Law Presidential Succession Clinic have also done important research in addressing the inadequacy of our current system of presidential succession.
