Missouri has become the 12th state to pass legislation calling for an Article V Convention of States that would propose constitutional amendments to rein in the federal government.

The COS resolution, SCR4, passed last Friday by a vote of 85 to 50. It was sponsored by state Sen. Mike Kehoe, R-Jefferson City.
