Rob Natleson, senior fellow of the Independence Institute, presents his first policy study relating to amending the Constitution of the United States through an Article V convention. 

The study details how an Article V convention is called, the rules of a convention, and the role of Congress. With the inaction of Congress to solve the nation's fiscal problems, Natleson provides a introductory look at how the Constitution can be amended through a convention. Some questions that are examined include: the convention agenda, the duties of Congress in calling a convention, and subject limitation of applications.

The Independence Institute published this study and was later re-printed by the Goldwater Institute.
