Montana Senator Howard: "Does Congress even represent us anymore?"

This is why we still have faith in the patriotism and statesmanship of our state representatives.

Montana State Senator David Howard gave an impassioned speech to his colleagues calling on them to join the effort to call the first-ever Convention of States. He asked a simple question: why should we trust Congress to get our nation back on track when they obviously don't care about us?

"Does Congress even represent us any more?" he asked. "I would submit they don't. I don't even think they know we're here."

There's only one solution to Congress' abuse and negligence: an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of federal power. These amendments can also impose fiscal restraints on Congress and limit the terms of office for federal officials.

Congress may not think We the People can threaten their stranglehold on our country, but we know the truth. A Convention of States can remind them who they work for, and force them to represent We the People rather than their own political ambitions.

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:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
