In the 1960s and ’70s Sen. Birch Bayh of Indiana became the first person since the United States’ founding fathers to write two amendments to the Constitution.
Bayh was the main author of the 25th Amendment, which created a process for an orderly transition of power in the case of death, disability or resignation of the president and a method of selecting a vice president when a vacancy occurs in that office.
He also wrote the 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18.
