Colorado Files Convention of States Application, To Be Heard in Committee TODAY Nancy French April 9, 2014 News Colorado Senator Kevin Lundberg (15) and House Representative Lori Saine (63), along with 26 additional representatives, filed SJR14-023 last week in the Colorado General Assembly, joining the growing number of state representatives across the country calling for an Article V Convention of States to restrain the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. “Colorado is ground zero for a lot of initiatives, so we have a tough fight on our hands,” said John Hopper, the state director for the Colorado Convention of States Project. “But we’re up for the fight and we’ll do everything we can to carry our message of liberty to our legislators.” The first step in this fight will be the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee, which will consider our application TODAY at 1:30 PM MST. If you live in Colorado, please take a moment to call and write Senators Jessie Ulibarri, Matt Jones, and Irene Aguilar and request they support SJR14-023 to call a Convention of States.
