    To allow Congress to reverse the judgments of the United States Supreme Court.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

    March 9, 2004


    Mr. Lewis of Kentucky (for himself, Mr. DeMint, Mr. Everett, Mr. Pombo, Mr. Coble, Mr. Collins, Mr. Goode, Mr. Pitts, Mr. Franks of Arizona, Mr. Hefley, Mr. Doolittle, and Mr. Kingston) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, and in addition to the Committee on Rules, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    A BILL

    To allow Congress to reverse the judgments of the United States Supreme Court.


    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the “Congressional Accountability for Judicial Activism Act of 2004”.

    SEC. 2. CONGRESSIONAL REVERSAL OF SUPREME COURT JUDGMENTS.

    The Congress may, if two thirds of each House agree, reverse a judgment of the United States Supreme Court—

    (1) if that judgment is handed down after the date of the enactment of this Act; and

    (2) to the extent that judgment concerns the constitutionality of an Act of Congress.

    SEC. 3. PROCEDURE.

    The procedure for reversing a judgment under section 2 shall be, as near as may be and consistent with the authority of each House of Congress to adopt its own rules of proceeding, the same as that used for considering whether or not to override a veto of legislation by the President.

    SEC. 4. BASIS FOR ENACTMENT.

    This Act is enacted pursuant to the power of Congress under article III, section 2, of the Constitution of the United States.

      I'm guessing they believe that this part of the constitution gives Congress the ability to over turn court rulings. What it says is that 'the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make'.
