Rewrite the Texas Constitution

I am petitioning to rewrite the Texas Constitution, as it is one of the lengthiest, most difficult state constitutions to understand. 

The Texas Constitution is one of the lengthier state constitutions, due to the amendments that have been added since it was first written. The problem with this is that amendments that have been overturned have not been removed, simply crossed out or ignored, only to be sent to another amendment elsewhere in the document. This makes the document nearly impossible to follow, as amendments are out of order and there is no organization. This makes it nearly impossible to decipher the meaning of some laws, and have a clear picture of instructions to follow the laws. 

This petition is not asking to start from scratch and create a whole new document, rather it is asking to simply cut and paste what laws are still valid, and organize the document. If the Texas Constitution can be revised, and reorganized, then I believe that it would make the lives of legislatures easier, and lead to faster outcomes of creating new policies.
