Madison Amendment

The Madison Amendment gives States the same power as Congress to propose an individual Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Full Text:

"ARTICLE ___. The Congress, on Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, which all contain an identical Amendment, shall call a Convention solely to decide whether to propose that specific Amendment to the States, which, if proposed shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified pursuant to Article V."

Rep. Walt Minnick (D,ID)
Rep. John Culberson (R,TX)
Rep. Rob Bishop (R, UT)
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D,TX)

Personal Comments:
