This paragragh is argumentative

"The Connecticut state constitution has been amended 30 times since 1965 without need of a convention. These amendments were initiated through the legislative process. Any state representative or state senator can introduce a constitutional amendment. If the measure receives either a 2/3 vote of support of both houses, or passes by a simple majority two years in a row, the proposed amendment goes to state voters to adopt or reject.[1]

It doesn't belong in a neutral introduction but could certainly be re-done (shortened) and put in arguments against section. January 02:55, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


I didn't realize that this article doesn't (yet) have an "arguments for" and an "arguments against" section. It should. See Missouri Proposition B (2008) or Oregon Ballot Measure 58 (2008) as just some examples. Then both sides can stick their arguments pro and con in freely, at least as long as the arguments are somewhat notable (appear in voter's guides, opinion columns, pro and con websites), etc. January 02:55, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
