Meet the Skeptic the Compact was Designed to Convert
August 23, 2017
In this CFALive podcast interview, constitutional scholar Trent England discusses his skepticism of constitutional amendments in general and state-initiated amendments through an Article V convention in particular.
But he also explains why his skepticism was addressed by the Compact approach to Article V - whereby Congress partners with the states to settle in advance all of the questions of the amendment process.
The Compact approach was specifically designed to take seriously the concerns of serious and thoughtful people like Trent. And it works.
