Legal Opinion and Scholarly Review


Founder John Cogswell establishes that there are adequate state applications for Congress to call an Article V Convention limited to proposing amendments.


Campaign Constitution in cooperation with The American Constitution Foundation analyzed all existing active Article V applications on file with Congress and has determined that at least 30 meet the strict criteria calling for a convention as prescribed in Article V of the US Constitution.  Founder Cogswell’s opinion moves the count beyond the two thirds threshold.
