GD-SIS Program: Contemporary State Constitutional Conventions: Proposals for Pennsylvania and Beyond

Recently, there have been calls in several states for constitutional conventions.  A proposal in California was ultimately dropped because of funding, but proposals elsewhere -- including Pennsylvania -- remain under consideration.  A state constitutional convention creates many issues, including delegate selection, funding, and possible limitations on the power of the convention. This program will examine the proposed constitutional convention in Pennsylvania, and compare it with proposals in other states.
