This bill enables retroactivity, and the impacts should be carefully considered.

Superficially, I support this retroactivity, which allows for citizens, including legislators, to "seek appropriate relief, including an injunction against the enforcement of any law the passage of which did not conform to this Act"

This is a fair approach to bring corrective action, but opens the door to a deluge of legislative action. Such deluge, though just, could overburden the mechanics of the system. A limitation maybe appropriate, but should conceivably extend at to the year 2000, to include abridgments of civil liberties beginning around 2001, which are presumably an important context to the inception of this bill.
