The Source: Texas Considering Call For Constitutional Convention
A week from today the Texas House committee on State and Federal Power and Responsibility will hold a hearing. The topic - Article FIVE of the U.S. Constitution. Texas is considering joining a drive of state legislatures to re-write the constitution.
This is something that Governor Greg Abbott supports so much he wrote a book about it. He has a wish list of 9 constitutional amendments that will radically change American government and our way of life.
But should we automatically fear and fret over a constitutional convention of states? Or is this just what the framers intended.
