Convention of States!


New National Record Set for Petitions at the Iowa State Fair

Published in Blog on September 02, 2021 by Jody Bown

Over 6,300 petitions were signed at the Iowa State Fair, giving the Iowa team the national record for a single event!

The historic Iowa State Fair just ended, running August 12 – August 22 with 1.1 million visitors. Located in Des Moines, Iowa, this state fair is one of the longest running and draws a huge crowd every year.

The Iowa COS volunteers had a booth during the fair's entirety which was manned by our ever-impressive Iowa COS volunteers. Their message to the people: the ever growing need for term limits, fiscal limits and restrictions on the power federal government.

The enthusiasm and dedication shown by this team as they talked to fairgoers was obviously well received. People of this wonderful country desire to have an option to combat against the expanding federal government and this was definitely reflected in the amount of signatures gathered for this petition.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time in making this a record-setting event. The previous petition record, set at the 2019 Kansas State Fair, was just over 2,000.  

We are on the way to passing this proposal in State Legislatures (we need 34) to call a Convention and bring back the power to The People!

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 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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
