Check it out:

Rep. Kelly Townsend, R-Mesa, has proposed that state legislators formally ask the federal government to call for a convention of states for the purpose of proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution; the gathering is also known as an Article V Convention.

House Concurrent Resolution 2027, sponsored by Townsend, is the first step that at least 34 states must take in order to set into motion the call for a convention of states. Article V of the U.S. Constitution says that if two-thirds of state legislatures request a convention of states, the federal government must call for a convention.

Article V permits the states to propose and ratify amendments to the U.S. Constitution without the votes of federal representatives and signature of the president.
