Rep. Steve Womack(R) of District 3, Arkansas introduced a joint-resolution to the U.S. Congress which aims at restoring Congress' constitutional authority over descration of our national colors. Womack is a veteran, who believes specific protections of the flag should not simply be law. They should be enshrined in the Constitution. The Constitution was last amended in 1992 with the ratification of the 27th Amendment, which limited laws regarding the raising or lowering of Congressional salaries.
