Public Hearing Held on Convention of States Resolutions

Morgantown Dominion Post, West Virginia Metro News – Sixteen people turned out for an early Tuesday public hearing on three House resolutions to urge Congress to call a convention of states to consider constitutional amendments. Read full article.

Ten people supported the amendments, six opposed them.

Article V of the U.S. Constitution allows two-thirds of the states – 34 now – to apply to Congress to call a convention for proposing amendments.

Resolutions of this sort are a perennial issue in the Capitol and generally cover the same few topics; only one has passed in recent years. A House Judiciary subcommittee set Tuesday’s hearing to consider whether to move forward with the three current resolutions.
