By Alabama News Network

The Alabama House is calling on Congress to convene a state-led convention to amend the U.S. Constitution to impose limits on the federal government.

 

A resolution sponsored by Republican Representative Ken Johnson cleared the Alabama House on Thursday and now goes to the Senate.

It proposes a convention under Article V of the Constitution.

It would be limited to imposing fiscal restraints on the federal government, limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and implementing term limits on federal elected officials.

 

 

The Constitution has never been amended through an Article V convention.
