The checks and balances of government and the Impeachment Clause, Article II of the U.S. Constitution, will be discussed by members of the Chautauqua County Women’s Bar Association at a Constitution Day panel at Fredonia on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 11 a.m. in Daniel Reed Library.

Chautauqua County Women's Bar Association logo"The U.S. Constitution's impeachment clause and system of shared powers known as checks and balances continue to be major points of discussion in today's political arena,” said Angela McGowan-Kirsch, assistant professor of Communication and chair of Fredonia’s American Democracy Project.
