A SAFE PATH FOR
PROPOSING AN AMENDMENT WITHOUT
Specific legislative actions by State leaders or by Members of Congress
could ensure that 34 states could proposed an identical Amendment
without the risk of a runaway convention.
If 34 states could safely propose an identical Amendment, Congress
would almost certainly, as it has throughout American history, propose
the Amendment states want for ratification rather than call an Article V
Convention. So if the the risk of a runaway convention were ended, a
bipartisan coalition of states could force Congress to propose an
Amendment without the need for a Convention.
If a citizens and state leaders in 34 states could safely propose an
individual Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Congress would be far
more accountable while states and Congress would have far more of an
incentive to work together cooperatively to meet America's challenges.
