Article V Convention
to Propose an Amendment to the US Constitution
Organizations Working for an Article V Convention
Taking the lead to get legislation for an Article V Convention are organizations such as Wolf-PAC and Rootstrikers...
Just two short years ago there were no state resolutions calling for an Article V Convention to address corrupting money in politics. In 2014 it is expected that 15 - 20 states will introduce resolutions calling for a convention to propose a Free and Fair Elections Amendment.
Texas is a leader in this effort as the first state to propose the "Wolf-PAC Resolution" in 2013. The first resolution in the nation was authored by Texas Representative Lon Burnam. For more information about the movement for an Article V Convention contact Todd Jagger, Wolf-PAC state director and member of Texans United to Amend.
Article V Convention call to Overturn Citizens United -
Published on Apr 4, 2013
This video shows the floor debate and vote to pass California AJR-1 out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee on April 2, 2013. If approved by the full Assembly, it will go on to the State Senate where, if approved, it will constitute an application for a Constitutional Convention. Another resolution passed out of Committee recently in the Minnesota House and Senate. In this video, Assembly Members Dickinson and Garcia were out of the room during the vote, but later voted to approve the measure.
If 34 States pass similar measures, an Article V Convention will be convened to propose Amendments to the US Constitution to overturn Citizens United. Those proposals must be ratified by 38 States, just like any Amendment proposed by Congress.
