8 June - Federal Negative to State Laws

by Dr Kieran Hazzard (khazzard)

Cite as: khazzard, ‘8 June - Federal Negative to State Laws’ in Kieran Hazzard, Bilder and Doubts Over Madison's Notes, Quill Project at Pembroke College (Oxford, 2019), item 283.


Bilder states that three sheets in the first section of Madison's Notes do not match the rest, and as a result believes that these were later replaced by Madison. In particular she points to the fact the material copied by Madison from the Journal does not appear as a clear addition as on other sheets but integrated into the text. Indicating that they were written as the text was produced.

One of these sheets contains Madison's comments on the national government requiring a negative on state laws on 8 June, it is therefore possible that this was added or edited after the fact.
