DES MOINES– Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation, as required by Iowa law, directing that the general election on November 3, 2020, include the question whether to call a constitutional convention to propose amendments to the Iowa Constitution.

Iowa’s constitution requires that every ten years, the people of Iowa vote in the general election whether to call a constitutional convention. If a majority approves of calling a constitutional convention, the next General Assembly would be required to enact a process for electing delegates to the convention and for submitting any constitutional amendments proposed by the convention for ratification by the people of Iowa.

The full text of the proclamation is available here.

    Now watch the crazies crawl out of the woodwork with their thoughts, comments and ideas which probably make no sense and would do no good if they were passed. Oh, well, everyone needs their 15 minutes of fame.
