Article V moves forward in Georgia

The Georgia House of Representatives has joined the Georgia Senate in approving Senate Resolution 731 seeking an Article V convention as part of the process of enacting a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Companion legislation regarding selection of delegates to the intended convention has also now been approved by both the House and Senate.

Two newer measures relating to a "convention of states" were also passed in the Georgia House last Thursday.

House Resolution 1215 also calls for an Article V convention.

House Bill 794 was another measure in favor of a federal balanced budget amendment.

For those interested in Thursday's Georgia House actions, the floor debate on the four measures lasted nearly four hours, and is presented here in its entirety without additional commentary.

The debate opens with comments from Rep. Rich Golick, R-Smyrna.

  1. WHat has me worried about a constitutional convention is the fact that progressives will stack the deck with "wet dreams" and truth be told, the feds blow off the constitution anyway and nobody does anything about it. If there is a "balanced budget" added to the amendments, the feds will ignore it. I hate to sound negative but as long as the democrats put party above country, this will happen.
