Constitutional Convention Resolution Stalls
House Majority Leader Ken Guin, D-Carbon Hill, said the resolution would need 53 votes to pass, and it didn't look like the resolution could get those votes Wednesday.
The resolution was brought up in the early hours of debate during the 27th legislative day.
State Rep. Demetrius Newton, D-Birmingham, is the sponsor. House Republicans oppose the bill because most of them favor an article by article revision rather than a constitutional convention.
