Florida Senate Calls for Convention of States to Confront Federal Government

Red Millennial

The Florida Senate has passed a resolution that calls for an Article V convention of states. According to early reports, the motion passed by a voice vote, due to the overwhelming support for the resolution.

Under Article V of the Constitution, states can call a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution if 34 states pass similar applications.

Last month, Georgia became the first state to officially submit an application for a convention of states that would meet “for the sole purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office of federal government officials.”
