Amendment 48: Constitutional Convention Act

Purpose: To allow the House to call a convention to replace this Constitution with one which is more effective.

Author: Renegalle

New Section, Article X: Constitutional Convention

1. The House of Representatives shall hold the power to call a constitutional convention, by a simple majority, consisting of the citizens at-large.
2. Upon it being called, the Convention shall hold the power to replace this Constitution with a new one, whether one document, or many disparate ones, with a period of debate lasting one week and a subsequent vote among the citizens lasting four days, in which a three-fifths majority in favor of the new document (or all of its parts) must be achieved.
3. Alongside the new Constitution, the Convention may also pass transitional provisions, holding equal power to the new Constitution, to ensure its effective enactment. These provisions must be passed at the same time, in the same manner, and with the same majority as the new Constitution.
4. Following the passage of a new Constitution and any transitional provisions, this convention shall come to a close.
