Dear [State Legislator],
As a resident of your district, I urge you to take action to restore meaningful constitutional limits on the federal government.
Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the power to act as a final check on the abuse of power in Washington, D.C. Under Article V, state legislatures have authority to hold a limited convention that can propose much-needed amendments to our Constitution. Once 34 states pass a resolution applying for such a convention, Congress must call one.
I support the approach adopted by the Convention of States Project and I want to see our state become one of the necessary 34 states to pass their model application.
A copy of the Convention of States model resolution is available by clicking here.
A copy of the Convention of States handbook, which briefly describes the Article V process and the Convention of States Project strategy, is available here.
Please support the Convention of States Project and consider sponsoring the resolution in our state.
Thank you for your time and your service to the people of our district.
