Excerpt: Constitution Up For Grabs?: Stephanie Gilloud on the Convention of States

Stephanie Gilloud, co director of Project South, explains the convention of states.

Gilloud explains the exact fallout if the convention were to take place, because once the constitution is open for budgeting changes, it’s open for all changes.
