Minnesota to rally for Convention of States at the Capitol!

Published in Blog on February 13, 2018 by Suzy Turbenson

Fill up your car with family & friends!

Join our rally to urge Minnesota legislators to help restore a proper balance of power between states and the federal government by passing the Convention of States resolution  HF 2690.

This exciting event will be held out of the elements, in the beautifully restored rotunda of the Minnesota Capitol.

We are thrilled to have two powerhouse speakers explaining how crucial COS is to the future of our nation.  

Pete Hegseth 
Minnesota native, FOX NEWS senior political analyst and weekend co-host of FOX & friends.

Mark Meckler 
Co-founder of the Convention of States Project

The rally is free and open to everyone interested in learning more about COS under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

COS Minnesota State Director Jackie Burns says,

This rally is an opportunity to elevate the voices of Minnesotans who want more local control in government. For Minnesotans, a big concern is Who Decides? In matters of state and local governance; will it continue to be the federal government, through redistribution of state revenues, control over public and private lands and failure to balance the national budget? Minnesota legislators can take back the decision-making power that belongs to the states by simply voting “Yay” on the COS resolution.


What: Minnesota Convention of States Rally at the Capitol
When: Thursday, March 15, 2:45PM
Where: Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda, St. Paul, MN

Directions to the Capitol can be accessed here.

A map of Capitol parking can be found here. 

Twelve states have passed the COS resolution while the Minnesota resolution currently resides in the Government Operations and Elections Policy Committee. Supporters would like to see Minnesota pass the COS Resolution this session. Two-thirds or 34 states are required to pass the resolution before a convention can be called.

For questions or more information please contact Jackie Burns, COS Minnesota State Director.
