Former UI law prof to discuss ‘independent state legislature’ theory

Don Burnett

University of Idaho Professor Emeritus Don Burnett will talk about “The Independent State Legislature — Fringe Political Theory or Constitutional Mandate?” at noon Wednesday at the 1912 Center’s Lecompte Auditorium as part of the Moscow League of Women Voters fall speaker series.

Burnett, a past dean of the UI College of Law, will address questions about the so-called “independent state legislature” theory, including whether a state legislature could appoint the state’s Electoral College delegates independently from the popular vote in that state.
