An Article V Convention: A Viable Path Towards Amending the Constitution?. Illinois is on the verge of becoming the third state to call for an Article V convention of the states for the purpose of proposing amendments to the US Constitution to reverse the effects of the Citizens United decision. That means amending the Constitution without Congress. Interesting idea? Scary idea? Come hear the experts and you decide! The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford will hold an educational public forum on Illinois' Senate Joint Resolution 42. SJR 42 has passed the Illinois Senate and is scheduled to be voted on during the veto session in November. Vermont and California have already passed this resolution. Should Illinois? Join us and get educated on the topic.
