November Unit Meetings
Constitutional Amendment Consensus
The LWVUS is conducting a study regarding the process for proposing an Article V Constitutional Convention. Would LWVUS support such a convention? What would the circumstances be to do so? The consensus question responses from each League will determine the conclusions.
The study of amending the U.S. Constitution is in three parts. The first part is to establish guidelines for evaluating constitutional amendment proposals. The second concerns the aspects of an Article V Constitutional Convention that may be important in conducting such a Convention. The third part pertains to how the League might put these guidelines into practice and asks two overall balancing questions between process and positions. A study guide for the discussion can be found at http://forum.lwv.org/member-resources/article/constitutional-amendment-study-guide.
November is the time to join a unit meeting and participate in the process. We need your input. Please bring the questions found on pages 5-8 with you. Hope to see you the third week in November at a unit meeting.
