(Lincoln, NE) -- Nebraska becomes the 17th state to call for a Constitutional Convention.
On Friday, Nebraska State Senators voted 32-11 to join 16 other states in calling for the convention. Four senators did not vote on Friday. In order to hold a Constitutional Convention, 34 states need to make a request. Then, 38 states would be needed to support actually ratifying an amendment proposed at a convention before it would become a reality.
If a Constitutional Convention happens, three subjects would be addressed: Congressional term limits, limiting the size and scope of the federal government, and considering fiscal restraints.
