The Founders of our country knew this would happen.
They knew the federal government would grow beyond its bounds, and they knew the people and the states would have to step in.
That's why they unanimously adopted the Convention of States option in Article V of the Constitution.
If they were alive today, and we complained to them about the waste, fraud, and abuse in Washington, D.C., they'd have one simple question: "Why haven't you used Article V?"
That was the message from Arkansas Senator Mark Johnson from the floor of the State Senate, and his eloquence helped pass our resolution on a 19-13 vote.
