Save HCR 3014 in North Dakota

Published in Blog on July 17, 2017 by Laura Scala

****BREAKING NEWS: Mission accomplished! Thank you for your quick response. In the past 12 hours, North Dakota Senators' inboxes have been flooded with hundreds of emails in support of HCR 3014. They will request a reconsideration vote this afternoon. Please stop all emails to ND senators unless you are a resident of the state. The Senate floor will convene at 1pm CT on March 25. Click here to watch the proceedings live. ****

For those who haven't been following the story, here's what's been happening in North Dakota:

Yesterday afternoon, the North Dakota Senate voted on the Convention of States Resolution -- HCR 3014 -- to call for a Convention of States to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. This is the tool given to us by the founding fathers that allows the states to check the runaway power of the federal government, using Article V of the US Constitution. If HCR 3014 passed, North Dakota would become the fourth state in history to successfully pass the application. In a matter of minutes, the measure was defeated 15-31 with absolutely zero discussion on the floor.

Obviously, this was unacceptable.

So we sent out a national call to action, asking our supporters to contact the North Dakota Senate and request they move for a reconsideration vote.

Convention of States patriots responded in a big way! You flooded the North Dakota Senate with calls and emails, and they've promised to request a reconsideration this afternoon.

Now we ask that you please stop all emails to North Dakota senators unless you are a resident of North Dakota. If you are a resident, please feel free to call or email the Senators below and respectfully request their support of HCR 3014 this afternoon.

These are the Senators who voted NO on HCR 3014.

Thank-you for fighting with us. In the words of Ronald Reagan, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” 

I look forward to telling my grandchildren that our generation did everything we could to protect our nation’s most precious gift: liberty.

Yours in the fight,
