Best Answer

The proposal for an amendment to the Constitution is initiated by either a two-thirds vote from both houses of Congress or from two-thirds (34) of state legislatures' call for a national convention. Ratifying (approving) amendments can only occur when either three-fourths of state legislatures approve, or through three-fourths approval at a state convention.
