step2: 3-4 of the ststes ratify the proposed amendment
HOPE THIS HELPS YOU
An amendment is an improvement, correction or revision of the original content of the Constitution approved in 1788.
The authority to amend the U.S. Constitution is derived from the Artice V of the Constitution. After the Congress porposes an amendment the Archivist of the United States who heads the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is in charge of administrate the ratification process.
The first step to amending the constitution is to receive a proposal for it and the Constitution foresee two ways; a proposal made by the Congress with two thirds of majority votes in both House of Representatives and the Senate or, the ohter way, a constitutional convention called for by two thirds of the States Legislatures. It is untill these days that neither of the 27 amendments were proposed by constitutional convention.
When the Congress propose an amendment it does in the way of a joint resolution, this resolution does not go to the White House for aproval because the president don´t hold a constitutional role. It goes directly to the NARA to be publish. In there the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) is the one in charge to do this and it also adds legislative history notes to the joint resolution before publishing as a slip law.
After the OFR prepare the joint resolution is the Archivist of the United States who have to submit the proposed amendment to the States for their consideration by sending a letter to the governors; then is in the hands of the governors to present the amendment to their respectives States legislatures or to call a convention depending what the Congress sepecifies. If the State ratifies the amendment it should send back to the Archivist an original or certified copy of the State action to be examine by the OFR to declare it legal and authentic and hold it untill the amendment is adopted or fails.
The amendment is adopted when three fourths of the States legislatures aprobed it and this way become a part of the Constitution.
So we can infer from this little summary that the first step to amend the constitution is to present a proposal either by the Congress with two thirds of the votes from the House and the senate or by a constitutional convention called by two thirds of the States legislatures.
I hope this answer help you. Regards
The answer is A: A proposal needs to win two-thirds of the vote in the House and Senate.
hope this helps you :3
The answer is: A proposal needs to win two-thirds of the vote in the House and Senate.
If the proposal obtain two-third of the votes, the proposal would be transferred to the states in order to obtain its ratification.
In order for the amendment to be enacted, 38 of the 50 states need to accepts the term written in the proposals. if this number is not fulfilled, the proposal would be given back to the house so it can change some of the terms written in the proposal.
The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate
Not to sure on this one I did a quick research and I think A )A proposal needs to win two-thirds of the vote in the House and Senate is your best bet. Please let me know if I was correct
The correct answer is:
A proposal for amending the Constitution must be made.
An amendment to the United States Constitution refers to a change or addition made to the Constitution, and has only happened 27 times since 1787.
The process for amending the Constitution is stated under Article V, the first step is proposing the amendment by two paths: The first path is amendments proposed by convention of the states with two-thirds votes of state legislatures, or two-thirds votes of states conventions. The second path (and the one that has been used) is amendments proposed by congress with two-thirds votes of state conventions (happened once), and amendments proposed by congress with two-thirds votes of state legislatures (the must common path).
Step 2: three-fourths of the states (38 states) ratify the proposed amendment, either by their legislatures or special ratifying conventions.
