The huge inter-state disparity in Senate representation - with citizens of Wyoming having an almost 70-fold larger representation per person than those of California - is prompting some to advocate amending the constitution in an attempt to address such inequality.
One of the concerns I’ve heard raised when the topic of amending the Constitution is discussed, is the potential for a so-called ‘runaway convention’ - where, even if a Constitutional Convention has been convened ostensibly for the purpose of adding or modifying a single specific, limited amendment, there is nothing to stop multiple additional proposals from being raised, voted on, and possibly passed.
Seems to me this is a real concern given that many states and their citizens appear to be genuinely enamored at this time with enshrining what seem to be overtly biased laws and policies. A Convention would therefore provide them with a unique and unchallengeable opportunity to do so.
Am I wrong about the potential for this type of outcome?
