Steps to an Article V Convention

Many political observers agree that Congress will not support an amendment that curbs their ability to pursue a lifelong career in office. Fortunately, the Founders of our country created a process by which the people of the nation could bring about constitutional change without the help of the House and Senate. This process is called an Article V Convention.

Under the Article V Convention, the States pass legislation that compels Congress to call a convention to start the amendment process.

Article V Convention

Here's How It Works...

Step 1.
Two-thirds of state legislatures (34) will pass bills applying for a convention to consdier an amendment for term limits.


Step 2.
Congress will be required to enact the convention, at which state delegates would propose the amendment to be presented to the states.



Step 3.
Once three-quarters (38) of state legislatures or state conventions ratify the amendment, congressional term limits will be come law.
