Written on Constitutional Bypass: Tennessee Joins Effort to Impose Spending Limits on National Congress:

Tell the truth Frank! Yes, all the states has a equal number of senators; without regard to the population of that particular state. But not so on the other side of Congress, the House of Representatives. California has 53 representatives, New York has 27 representatives and the other states you mentioned North Dakota, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana all have only 1 representative each. A constitutional amendment would have to be approved by a two-thirds majority of both the Senate and the House to pass. Thus the population of a state whether large or small is equally represented.
