(p.105) 7 Ratification
The Twenty-Fifth Amendment

John D. Feerick

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the ratification process of the Amendment. The Amendment was ratified by the necessary thirty-eight state legislatures on February 10, 1967, and formally proclaimed the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution at a White House ceremony held on February 23, 1967. By the end of 1965, thirteen states had ratified it, and by one year after its submission thirty states had ratified it. The relatively smooth and rapid ratification accorded the Amendment was the result in large measure of the efforts of lawyer groups throughout the country, working in conjunction with the American Bar Association.
