Growing Support for Constitutional Amendment?

Piece in HuffPo about California calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. The state doesn’t propose any specific wording, and states that:

the Legislature of the State of California calls upon the United States Congress to propose and send to the states for ratification a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and to restore constitutional rights and fair elections to the people

This, I believe, doesn’t count as a state actually asking Congress to call a national convention, but maybe it means the assembly would support such a request.
