Remembering former US Sen. Birch Bayh

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Former U.S. Sen. Birch Bayh passed away at the age of 91.

A memorial will be held in Maryland Friday for the former senator.

His legacy includes two constitutional amendments - the 25th on presidential succession and the 26th, which lowered the voting age to 18.

He is also considered a driving force behind Title IX, which mandates equal rights for women in public education and athletics.

Allison Barber, Fever president, stopped by Daybreak to talk about Bayh's legacy on Friday.
