Convention of States!

Legislative week

Published in Blog on March 24, 2024 by Matt May

A relatively quiet legislative week is on tap, though important F3 legislation may be discussed on the Bayou. 

Today in Louisiana, there is a possibility that the state senate will debate and vote upon SB 133. This legislation bars international organizations such as the World Health Organization, the World Economic Forum, and the United Nations from any power or jurisdiction in the state of Louisiana. 

SB 133 prevents communications or recommendations that are issued by such organizations as the impetus to action by any governmental entity of the state of Louisiana. 

As detailed here, Convention of States Action (COSA) Louisiana state director Julie Sandifer delivered testimony in favor of SB 133 during a successful hearing conducted by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection & International Affairs.

The committee voted in favor of the measure, which was offered by Sen. Thomas Pressly.

Our grassroots efforts to support such legislation is vital to federalism and sovereignty. To join our movement, sign the petition below and contribute your time and talent.

UPDATE: SB 133 was approved in the Louisiana Senate on March 26, and moves to the House of Representatives for consideration.

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 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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:

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