Rob Natelson on Calling a Constitutional Convention
Michael Ramsey

Rob Natelson has a pair of posts on the ability of states to call a limited convention for amending the Constitution: May State Legislatures Limit an Article V Convention to a Specifically Worded Amendment? Part 1 and Part 2.  (The core of the argument is in Part 2)

Perhaps surprisingly, since he thinks states can call a convention limited by subject matter, he thinks they can't call one limited to a specifically worded amendment.
