An amendment is a change or addition to the Constitution.

When the Constitution was written, the Framers knew that laws change as a country grows. They also recognized that it shouldn't be too easy to make modifications to the Constitution. It was also important that it did not lose its meaning. This is why Congress can pass amendments in only two ways: by a two-thirds vote in the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives or by a special convention.
