The World

October 24, 1985

Brazil's Congress approved a bill to set up a national commission to rewrite the constitution, vastly altered by the military regime that ran the country for more than two decades. The bill, passed on a vote of 399 to 61, calls for a constitution-writing commission to be made up of new senators and House of Representatives members to be elected Nov. 15, 1986. The commission will convene Feb. 1, 1987.
