Wyoming Senate calls for a Convention of States in a 17-13 vote

Published in Blog on February 05, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

The Wyoming Senate passed the Convention of States Resolution in a 17-13 on Monday morning. This is the first chamber to pass the resolution in 2023. 

COSA President Mark Meckler appeared before the Wyoming Senate Committee on Corporations, Elections, & Political Subdivisions twice last week to explain why the Article V approach to the overreaching federal government is so necessary. The Committee recommended passage of the resolution in a 3-2 vote, passing it along to the Senate floor.

That same evening, the full Wyoming Senate voted to pass SJ 11 on first reading by a vote of 18-12. The resolution passed on second reading by a voice vote. The final reading and vote on Monday secured the Senate's decision.

The resolution will now make its way to the House before Wyoming becomes the 20th state to officially call for a Convention of States.  

"We've heard a lot of arguments, but voting yes on this, it's a vote for our children, and their children and their future," Sen. Evie Brennan said minutes before the final vote.

A strong Convention of States advocate, Brennan was elected to the Wyoming Senate this past November after former Senator and COSA Senior Advisor Rick Santorum inspired her to run for office.

Many other state legislatures are actively considering the COS Resolution as well, including New Hampshire and Virginia. 

We must keep pushing to get the COS Resolution across the finish line in Wyoming. Please join us in the fight by signing the petition below.

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:
