SCR 108 calls that Idaho join a convening of states at a Constitutional Convention as allowed under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. 

The ACLU of Idaho is opposed to SCR 108 because a constitutional convention places our entire form of government and all of our carefully crafted freedoms and liberties at great risk. We cannote confine a constitutional convention to a single subject, nor is there any way to protect against a convention rewriting our nation’s founding document. There are no standards governing the conduct and procedures of a constitutional convention and no way to ensure that delegates will truly represent the will of the people or be representative of all who live in Idaho. Ultimately, there is no mechanism for ensuring that the rules governing the convention’s conduct are fair and that the U.S. Constitution, and our fundamental civil liberties, will not end up on the chopping block.
