Constitutional Soundbites: How Can States Amend the Constitution?
What is the process behind amending the U.S. Constitution? Can it only be done federally or are states able to seize control?
In this episode of The Heartland Institute’s Constitutional Soundbites series, David Shestokas, Chris Talgo and Lindsey Stroud discuss “Article V: Amendments” from Shestokas’ book Constitutional Soundbites. Topics include: the U.S. Constitution amendment process, how amendments are proposed, how amendments become effective, and the probability of amending the Constitution in the near future.
