BREAKING: Wisconsin becomes 16th state to pass Convention of States Resolution!

Published in Blog on January 25, 2022 by Article V Patriot

We have AMAZING news!

The Wisconsin legislature has officially passed the Convention of States Resolution, making the Badger State the 16th to call for a Convention of States to limit federal power, spending, and terms of office.

"Thank goodness our Constitution has given the states and the people a framework to step in and save the Republic when Congress will not. Today we sent a message that Wisconsin stands ready to rein in federal overreach," said Wisconsin State Senator Kathy Bernier following the historic vote.

"Times like these are precisely why the Founders created the mechanisms in Article V," agreed Wisconsin State Representative Dan Knodl. "Federal overreach has thrown our country into chaos, and it's time for the states to exercise their authority as granted to them in the constitution to restore order, states’ rights, and limited, constitutional government. I'm incredibly proud that our state has officially thrown its support behind this movement."

A huge congratulations to our entire team in Wisconsin who have worked tirelessly to secure today’s victory. This success has been years in the making, but the message it sends is clear.

We the People are fed-up with the federal government's ever-increasing disregard for our constitutional rights. It’s time to rein in the ruling class in D.C. and return power to where the Founders’ intended — the states.

It takes 34 states to call the Convention, and with today’s incredible victory in Wisconsin, the following 16 states have now joined the call: Georgia, Alaska, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, North Dakota, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Utah, Mississippi, and Wisconsin!

As Biden and Congress’ approval ratings continue to plummet, this is our moment in history to take action.

Momentum is on our side. As our team celebrates Wisconsin’s bold move to save the nation, we turn our eyes to the Senators in Nebraska who are expected to take their final vote on the COS Resolution in a matter of days.

If they follow in Wisconsin’s footsteps, they will become state #17 to join the call, putting us halfway to calling the Convention.

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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
