Article Five: “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments…”
So it’s 2017, and the legislators of 33 States of the U.S. have indeed submitted applications for a Constitutional convention, and 16 states have rejected just such an application. You’ve been in state office for the last state with such an application on the docket, since your days at the League encouraged you to more fully participate in the legislative process. The floor vote is up, and you’re the
tie-breaking winning or losing vote of state number 34.
What say you, sir?
