INDIANAPOLIS - Delegates from across the country will meet in Indianapolis to discuss the process for states to amend the U.S. Constitution without congressional approval.
The June 12-13 gathering of The Mount Vernon Assembly will focus on shaping the rules and procedures for a Convention of the States.
Indiana Senate President David Long tells The Times of Munster that the group won't propose any amendments this time.
Two-thirds of state legislatures must ask Congress to call a Convention of the States to propose amendments. The amendments can be added to the Constitution without congressional approval so long they are ratified by three-fourths of the states.
The process has never been used. Traditionally, two-thirds of Congress must propose an amendment and 38 states must ratify it before it can take effect.
