ABSTRACT
The article reports on how the constitutional amendment process could strengthen policy reforms of any kind. It discusses substantive amendment or the type that could restrict the scope of the national government, preventing it from doing certain kinds of things, and the procedural type, which could let a state override national legislation. It addresses the problems these two types present including the myriad of procedural issues about how to convene a convention, and what powers it may have.
