The following was written by Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler.

It feels so good to deliver this victory announcement to you.

In the midst of this pandemic, the shut-down of our economy, nationwide protests and social unrest, today I witnessed that liberty resides deep in the American spirit. Today, self-governance was victorious!

The COS Michigan team of activists worked tirelessly to keep pushing the Convention of States Resolution, and now they’ve secured a major victory: the Michigan Senate Committee on Government Operations has passed our resolution on a 3-2 vote!

This victory puts us one step closer to making Michigan the 16th state to pass the COS resolution, and we prevailed in bringing liberty one step closer to citizens who have endured tyranny.

Michigan’s tyrannical governor Gretchen Whitmer isn’t happy today to learn the legislature is standing up for the sovereign citizens of the state. But we don’t need her approval to pass COS in Michigan. This is a citizen-led movement, and today the citizens won! 

However, our work is not over yet. The grassroots secured the three necessary votes to pass this committee, but now we must secure the votes of 20 senators to pass the full senate. Our adversaries will try to end our effort to return power to the sovereign citizens of the states -- we need your help to continue the fight.

We must push for the next victory now, while we have the advantage and momentum.

If you live in Michigan, it's crucial that you contact your Senator ASAP and voice your support for SJR L.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
