Every few decades, there has been a call for an Article V Convention, for the purpose of proposing amendments to the United States Constitution.    Once again, the call is being trumpeted.   The Article V Convention is now being phrased as The Convention of States Project.  This Convention of states is a convention called by the state legislatures for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution.  Proponents want to call a convention for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.  We certainly know that the federal government is recklessly overreaching its powers … and that it is being allowed to happen.

While the Convention of States sounds like a good idea, there are questions.  If the Federal Government ignores the current Constitution, why would they adhere to an amended Constitution?  Is a convention of the states safe from turning into a “runaway convention”?  Where is the funding coming from, and who is the parent organization for the COS project?


Scott Williams, Tennessee State Director of the Convention of States Project is joining Debbie Barth and her illustrious panel, to answer these questions and to give his point of view for the Convention of States.
