Article 18 to Fix California

The giant California budget imbalance, Republican obstruction of the budget via the distasterous 2/3 rule, new legislative leadership, an unpopular Governornator who seems to have checked out, and a change cycle should come together to put into play Article XVIII of the California Constitution:

SEC. 2. The Legislature by rollcall vote entered in the journal,
two-thirds of the membership of each house concurring, may submit at
a general election the question whether to call a convention to
revise the Constitution. If the majority vote yes on that question,
within 6 months the Legislature shall provide for the convention.
Delegates to a constitutional convention shall be voters elected from
districts as nearly equal in population as may be practicable.
