  • The first step is to discuss and draft an agenda for a Convention of the States for the sole purpose of writing the rules that would govern any Article V conventions for proposing amendments.

    We believe establishing these rules will:
    (1) cultivate the communication and interaction of state legislators, fostering a rebalance of power under our federal system; and
    (2) ensure that a prudent and cautious process is put in place to govern all future deliberations of the body; and
    (3) eliminate the distraction around the process of an Article V Convention, thus allowing Article V applications to be analyzed on the merits of its subject matter.

  • If a delegate does not follow those instructions, their vote would be voided and their appointment to the convention would be forfeited. They also could be charged with a third-degree felony.

  • The Jefferson Statement
    The Constitution's Framers foresaw a day when the federal government would exceed and abuse its enumerated powers, thus placing our liberty at risk. George Mason was instrumental in fashioning a mechanism by which "we the people" could defend our freedom -- the ultimate check on federal power contained in Article V of the Constitution.
    Article V provides the states with the opportunity to propose constitutional amendments through a process called a Convention of States. This process is controlled by the states from beginning to end on all substantive matters.
    A Convention of States is convened when 34 state legislatures pass resolutions (applications) on an agreed topic or set of topics. The Convention is limited to considering amendments on these specified topics.
    While some have expressed fears that a Convention of States might be misused or improperly controlled by Congress, it is our considered judgment that the checks and balances in the Constitution are more than sufficient to ensure the integrity of the process.
    The Convention of States mechanism is safe, and it is the only constitutionally effective means available to do what is so essential for our nation -- restoring robust federalism with genuine checks on the power of the federal government.
    We share the Founders' conviction that proper decision-making structures are essential to preserve liberty. We believe that the problems facing our nation require several structural limitations on the exercise of federal power. While fiscal restraints are essential, we believe the most effective course is to pursue reasonable limitations, fully in line with the vision of our Founders, on the federal government.
    Accordingly, I endorse the Convention of States Project, which calls for an Article V Convention for "the sole purpose of proposing amendments that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress."
