The Wisconsin Senate on Tuesday approved a resolution calling for a Convention of the States.

"Thank goodness our Constitution has given the states and the people a framework to step in and save the Republic when Congress will not,” Sen Kathy Bernier, R-Chippewa Falls, said.

The measure passed on a 17-16 vote that saw four Republicans join every Democrat in the Senate in voting against the idea.

“I agree with the problem that the legislators are trying to fix. It’s just that I disagree with the mechanism they are employing to fix that problem,” Sen. Roger Roth, R-Appleton, said before casting his "No" vote. “To me, it comes down to two questions. Can the call to convention be limited in scope to just one issue, and then can that call be rescinded?”

The Wisconsin Assembly approved the same resolution back in May.:snip:
