Transcript 20 MONTROSE VOICE / APRIL 10, 1987 Coalition Wants to Halt Constitutional Convention AUSTIN (UPI)—A rare coalition of liberals and conservatives is urging the Texas Legislature to lead the way in stopping a federal constitutional convention that is only two states short of approval. The group, which includes People for the American Way and Phyllis Schla- fly's Eagle Forum, said March 26 it wants the Legislature to withdraw a 1977 petition for a constitutional convention on a balanced budget amendment. Rep. Clint Hackney, D-Houston, has filed in the Texas House a resolution that would cancel the state's petition for the nation's first constitutional convention in 200 years. Thirty-two states have passed resolutions calling for Congress to convene a constitutional convention, and only two more are needed before it must act. A similar resolution has passed the Nevada House and was scheduled for debate in the Senate. "My main concern is that the very foundation of this country could be undermined by opening up the constitution for amendments in an open convention," Hackney said. The lawmaker said there is no historical or legal precedent for a convention open to only one subject. Arthur Kroop, executive director for People for the American Way, an anti- censorship group, told a news conference the nation is at "the brink of a constitutional crisis." "Mrs. Schlafly's help in trying to stave off attempts to call a constitutional convention shows the great broad base of support for our efforts," he said. "Together, we ask Texas to lead the nation and withdraw its resolution calling for a constitutional convention." Kroop said many state legislatures apparently did not understand what they were doing when they adopted the resolutions. "Perhaps these states' public officials used the resolutions to send a political message to Washington to get its fiscal house in order," he said. "And perhaps they saw little chance of a convention actually being called." Mike Hudson, Texas director of People for the American Way, called the proposed convention "a bad idea whose !?[»¥ FOR HIM j IN f FOR HER INTERNATIONAL MILITARY FASHIONS FRENCH * GERMAN * ITALIAN * WWg VINTAGE -fr COME 3JW THE FASHION ARMY AT ILROY'S w-'V1vw- INTERNATIONAL MILITARY SURPLUS HDQRS.
