Did you know there are bills before congress to put an abridged version of the U.S. Constitution on the back of $1 bills? Bills H.R.1785 and S. 244 were initiated by students at Liberty Middle School in Ashland, Virginia in an effort to make our nation’s top legal document a fixture on American currency.

This is the first I’ve heard of the initiative. I saw a full-page ad for the project in a magazine and was thrilled by the idea. How could this NOT be cool? It’s a shame that many Americans don’t know their rights as citizens and the prospect of having those rights visible to anyone wanting to get a soda from a vending machine is priceless. I just wonder why no one thought of this idea sooner? Perhaps we could also print other important documents on the backs of other currency as well?
