Utah Senate win proves persistent patriots can have huge impact at the state level

The Utah Senate just issued a wakeup call to Congress, passing the Convention of States resolution with a final vote of 16-12!

If the UT House follows suit, Utah will officially become state #14 to join our movement. 

Today’s historic victory is particularly noteworthy, because in the past, the Utah Senate has stood in staunch opposition to our cause.

But after years of hard work, our team on the ground won the day, generating a groundswell of grassroots support. Their hard work proves that, with persistence, average American patriots can have a real impact at the state level.

"The grassroots in Utah and around the country are very excited that the Utah Senate passed the COS resolution today," said Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler. "We owe a debt of gratitude to the great grassroots, and to tremendous leadership by Sen. Vickers and Sen. President Adams, both long term COS supporters. Now it’s on to the House, where we also have great leadership in support of the resolution. We’re looking forward to making Utah, state number 14."

With the strength of the Senate now behind us, we are hopeful for our prospects of passing in the House -- making Utah state #14 to send an eviction notice to corrupt politicians in Washington, D.C.

Momentum is on our side. Now is the time to double down on our efforts and secure the votes needed for victory.

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 to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement 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 an 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 Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

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