Alabama and New Mexico Join the Fight Jordan Sillars January 20, 2014 News Two more states have joined the fight to preserve liberty in America! Alabama Rep. Ken Johnson, along with 32 other Alabama representatives, filed the COS application in the Alabama House of Reps. on January 16. A few weeks prior, New Mexico Rep. Yvette Herrell pre-filed the COS application in her state on January 2. COS Alabama State Director Joseph Bryan Read had this to say about the effort in his state: “The Alabama Convention of States Team is excited about the progress made in the state of Alabama to move forward a resolution in the Alabama State House to apply for a Convention of States under Article V of the US Constitution. Our Alabama COS District Captains have done an excellent job communicating with our elected state representatives and assisting them in understanding the process and answering questions. We are also appreciative of the Alabama state representatives who are moving the process forward. They did so in a way that was fair, meticulous, and analytical. This is only the first step forward. We will continue to inform and gain new supporters each and every day.” The addition of these two states brings the total count of states that will discuss the COS application to six. And we’re just getting started! Numerous other state legislators have agreed to support our application, and we have fantastic volunteer teams across the country. These men and women demonstrate what is possible when Americans sacrifice their time and energy to help their country. Thanks to them, a Convention of States is more than just an idea. Now it’s an actual piece of legislation that will be debated and voted upon in this legislative session. And, given the dedication of our volunteers so far, we’re optimistic about our chance of success. The question isn’t if a Convention of States will happen—the question is when. Want to help? Join the fight today!
