WHY CALL A CONVENTION OF STATES? Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.
WHAT’S A CONVENTION OF STATES ANYWAY? Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”
SO IS THERE ANY PROGRESS? You better believe it! Since the Project launched in 2013, it's been spreading like wildfire. With over 3 million supporters nationwide, there are petition signers in every single state house district across America. People are actively working in all fifty states to pass the Convention of States Application!
