Joint Committee on a Constitutional Convention. Report relative to calling a constitutional convention, 1834
SEE ALSO 52465, 52470 House No. 67 Report of the Joint Committee relative to calling a convention to amend the Constitution [n.d.] On
February 3, 1834, the Joint Committee was directed to consider reducing the size of the House of Representatives one more time; it issued an undated report.
This serious problem had been discussed for years and all attempts by the Legislature itself to fix it had failed. The Committee recommended
calling a Constitutional Convention to consider this issue alone and submitted a bill: An Act relating to calling a Convention of Delegates of the People,
for revising the Constitution so far as it regards the House of Representatives, 1834. All jurisdictions would meet the second Monday in May to
decide if the Convention should be held. There were directions for the voting. If the votes were in favor, the Governor would call for a vote to select
delegates and there were directions for that process. The Convention was to meet in October and organize itself. If it developed an amendment, the
people would vote on it and the process would be over. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
