For two centuries, almost no scholarship existed regarding the state-initiated amendment process described in Article V of the US Constitution. 1988's "Constitutional Brinksmanship", by Russell Caplan, was the first serious work addressing this issue.

In 2009, Georgetown Law Professor Randy Barnett promoted the idea of states applying for an Article V Amending Convention to discuss and propose amendments described in his "Bill of Federalism." He has since included this work in his book "Our Republican Constitution."

The latest book on Article V will be released nationally this coming Tuesday, May 30th. Written by Convention of States Senior Advisor Dr. Tom Coburn, this book provides insight available only from someone like Dr. Coburn, who became known as "Dr. No" during his tenure in the US Senate!

And, of course, we'll discuss two other Article V books - Mark Levin's "The Liberty Amendments", and Governor Greg Abbott's "Broken But Unbowed".

The Convention of States Project is a grassroots led effort to encourage state legislatures to use the Constitutionally authorized state-initiated amendment process to propose and ratify amendments to the U.S. Constitution that will restrain our overreaching federal government.

"That Provident Article" is hosted by Convention of States Texas co-director Paul Hodson. #TexasLeads #COSProject #ArticleV #TexasPlan #ConventionOfStates #COSProjectTX #COSPodcasts
