Indiana's Senate last week passed a resolution calling for a national Constitutional Convention under Article V of the Constitution of the United States "for the specific and exclusive purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States to limit certain powers of Congress. Based on the following provision it would seem that Indiana is aiming to be the first state to fire a shot into the heart of Obamacare in the post-Sebelius world:
[T]his application is for a convention limited to considering and proposing amendments on the following topics:
(1) Additional limitation of the power of the Congress to regulate commerce among the several states under Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 of the Constitution of the United States.
(2) Additional limitation of the power of the Congress to tax under Article I of the Constitution of the United States and under the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
There's a dearth of commentary in the national press, but the folks at Balkinization are pretty excited about the whole thing. Read this post and the entertaining comments to be transported directly back to Con Law I.
