We acknowledge the fact that the States have satisfied the required two-thirds numerical threshold to call for an Article V Convention Convention under Article V of the US Constitution and Congress should call an Article V Convention to order.

The Federal Government Does Not Track the Applications for an Article V Convention.
"Between 1973 and 1992, 22 bills were introduced in the House and 19 in the Senate that sought to establish a procedural framework that would apply to an Article V Convention. Proponents argued that constitutional convention procedures legislation would eliminate many of the uncertainties inherent in first-time consideration of such an event and would also facilitate contingency planning, thus enabling Congress to respond in an orderly fashion to a call for an Article V Convention. The Senate, in fact, passed constitutional convention procedures bills, the "Federal Constitutional Convention Procedures Act" on two separate occasions: as S. 215 in 1971 in the 92nd Congress, and as S. 1272 in 1983, in the 93rd Congress. Neither bill was considered in the House, although the Subcommittee on Civil and Constitutional Rights of the House Judiciary Committee held hearings on the general issue in 1985." According to the Federal government, the count is ZERO.

"No doubt many here have studied the official public record of an Article V Convention including all pertinent historic documentation, congressional proceedings, judicial rulings and current events. Originally, I was to prepare a speech for this conference discussing these aspects. However scheduling circumstances reduced it to this brief summary. For those interested in more details regarding these remarks I am leaving copies of the speech at the table. You can also visit our website at http://www.foavc.org to read this information."
