I would assume that each state would prudently put in place a stop-gap measure to ensure that recalls are not commonplace; be it by super-majority, or executive concurrence, or whatever means they choose.JEQuidam wrote:
That being said, it may be prudent for a super-majority vote to be required, or the recall is not effected until the replacement Senator is approved by the state legislature.
At the Federal level, a stick can legislatively be put in place (at the time of repeal) to create an incentive for states to ensure they have full representation in the Senate. I imagine an easy fix would be to simply subtract that states slot from the tally of the whole (e.g. 50 would be a majority, instead of 51), or, possibly allow the President of the Senate to cast a vote in the case of an absent Senator. Ultimately, any state legislature that causes damage to their state due to malfeasance will ultimately have to face the voters. THAT should be the greatest incentive of all!
There are plenty of options, and they can all be rationally gamed out. I don't think that should be a show stopper one way or the other.
