SAME SUBJECT APPLICATIONS

Below is a table summarizing the most applied for amendment subjects by the states. Please note that at least two subjects, Repeal of Income Tax and Balanced Budget have sufficient state support not only to cause a convention call by themselves but to be ratified as well. A third subject, Apportionment, has sufficient support to cause a convention call by itself but lacks two states for ratification. Finally, as shown in our Table Summarizing State Applications, the Direct Election Of Senators should have caused a convention call as there were a sufficient number of applying states (31) to satisfy the Constitution as there were only 46 states in the union at the time (1911) of the applications.
