More than one hundred state legislators from thirty three states are in Indianapolis this week to set up the framework for states to amend the US Constitution in a national convention.

Among those attending the “Mt Vernon Assembly” is Senator Dan Lederman of Dakota Dunes. He says they are calling it an Article 5 meeting……

Lederman says while Article 5 of the Constitution is fairly vague, those at the meeting are attempting to write the rules for a meeting of the states………

He says supporters want an orderly convention.

Lederman says there are several issues driving the idea of a Constitutional Convention………

Along with Lederman, other South Dakota legislators at the meeting include Representatives Jenna Haggar and Jim Stalzer of Sioux Falls, Isaac Latterell of Tea and Blaine Campbell of Rapid City.
