Neighbors on Call’s NC Policy Update for 3/13/23

  • On Wednesday the NC House approved two resolutions that call for a national convention to propose changes to the US Constitution. If the resolutions pass the NC Senate, North Carolina will join 19 states of the 34 needed to call a “convention of states,” one of the methods of constitutional amendment permitted by the US Constitution. One of the resolutions focuses on term limits for national elected office, while the other calls for amendments that would limit government spending power and “prevent government overreach.” The push for a constitutional convention has mostly been driven by Republicans, although a few Democrats in the NC House supported one or both of the resolutions.
