Amending the Constitution

The Senate is currently considering an amendment to the US Constitution. How would a legal researcher find the proposed amendment? Proposed amendments are introduced as joint resolutions and are available on Thomas. You can browse bills and resolutions here. You can search for a specific amendment using Thomas' bill text search. If you can too many results, it may help to include the terms "proposing an amendment."
