    PITTENGER. ``The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice President, shall be the Vice President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice President of the United States.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. It's my pleasure to yield to the gentleman from Georgia (Mr. Lewis).

    Mr. LEWIS. Amendment XIII: Section 1: ``Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.'' Section 2: ``Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. I yield to the gentleman from Arkansas (Mr. Womack).
