Convention of States!


Halfway there! Convention of States movement hits historic milestone in fight to rein in federal power

Published in Blog Hottest on January 31, 2022 by Article V Patriot

The Convention of States movement has officially reached a historic milestone.

For the first time in our nation's history, 17 of the requisite 34 states have called for a Convention of States to rein in federal power, impose fiscal restraints on Congress, and limit the terms of office for federal officials.

Nebraska passed the Convention of States Resolution last week, which put us halfway to calling the first-ever Article V Convention of States.

“We are now officially at the halfway mark for the number of states the Constitution requires to call a Convention of States to permanently limit the gross overreach of the federal government and restore balance to the republic based on the original design of our founders,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action.

“These grassroots victories have been years in the making but have accelerated rapidly in the last year, as more and more Americans realize the dangers of an out-of-control Washington, D.C., and the true power that average citizens have if they organize and refuse to surrender their God-given rights.”

Check out the videos below for an inside look at our victories in Wisconsin and Nebraska. 

Here's a map of all the states that have passed the Convention of States Resolution so far:

We're just getting started. Momentum is building in other states after our wins in Wisconsin and Nebraska. We're also close in South Carolina, South Dakota, and Iowa, just to name a few.

A HUGE thanks goes out to our amazing grassroots activist and legislative champions, and we can't wait to see what the next few months will bring!

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 to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement 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 an 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 Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. 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.
