The model legislation (below) is specific to the state of Missouri ("the Show Me state"). This model legislation would need to be modified before being introduced in other states. The exact wording of the legislation will vary from state to state.
The first example shown below is for an Equal Representation Amendment to the Missouri Constitution, implementing a system of proxies in both houses of Missouri’s General Assembly.
The second example is the Article V Amendment being proposed.
The third example is a Joint Resolution petitioning Congress to amend Article V of the Constitution of the United States and making a formal application for an Article V convention limited to considering the proposed amendment to Article V. This Joint Resolution would have to be adopted by a state legislature in order to be transmitted to Congress and other state legislatures.
The fourth example is a resolution of support for amending Article V of the Constitution of the United States that can be signed by the members of the Missouri General Assembly and transmitted to the Congress of the United States even if it is not adopted by the General Assembly.
Getting Joint Resolutions that petition Congress to amend Article V of the Constitution of the United States and making a formal application for an Article V convention enacted in each state is the preferred accomplishment. That may prove difficult. The resolutions of support for amending Article V will serve an important purpose – allowing incumbent state legislators to demonstrate their support for democracy and providing the voters in each state with the means of identifying the incumbents in each state who support democracy and those who don’t support democracy. Being able to make that distinction will be critical to our success in making the election of 2022 a referendum on democracy in America.
