/PRNewswire/ -- Georges Marciano, candidate for Governor of California, called upon every member of California's State Legislature to immediately pass a resolution calling for a constitutional convention. "We are living in the 21st Century; Californians deserve a 21st century constitution," exclaimed Mr. Marciano.
In his letter, dated June 22nd, Mr. Marciano stated, "It is time for this to occur. For too long now, our Constitution has produced gridlock, delay and injustice, rather than promote a responsive and accountable government."
Pursuant to California's Constitution, Article 18, Section 2, the legislature may vote on the question of whether to call a convention to revise the constitution. Upon passage by two-thirds of the membership of each house, the Legislature shall provide for the convention within 6 months. Mr. Marciano hopes for a strong and immediate response coming within the next 20 days.
