COS Resolution on the brink of passing Pennsylvania Senate

Published in Blog on June 29, 2022 by Article V Patriot

The Convention of States Application is on the calendar waiting for a vote in Pennsylvania, which could become state number 20 to pass the Resolution calling for a convention to rein in the overreaching federal government.

The Pennsylvania Senate has the capacity to pass the Resolution this week, however, just a few Republican senators are holding up the vote. 

One of the most common misconceptions about a convention – which a pro-Second Amendment group is worried about – is the fear of a runaway convention, in which the foundations of the Constitution could be altered. The 2A group is holding up just a few senators with this myth.

Each state that passes the Resolution is only agreeing to three specific topics of discussion: term limits on federal officials, fiscal restraints and limits to the size and jurisdiction of the federal government. Additionally, 38 states must agree to any such change before an amendment can be ratified.

As COS endorser and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum said, the real risk is not doing anything to fix the issues in the Washington swamp.

“It’s in the Constitution,” Santorum said on the Mark Levin show. “We’re following the Constitution. This is exactly why the Founders put it in the Constitution… is to give someone at the local level, at the state level, the power to check Washington. The Constitution’s all about checks and balances, and this was the biggest check and we haven’t used it.”

“Washington cannot fix itself,” added Santorum. 

Let’s use the Constitution to save the Constitution!

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:
