The Convention of States is a project of the Citizens for Self Governance. According to the website dedicated to this project: Citizens concerned for the future of their country, under a federal government that’s increasingly bloated, corrupt, reckless and invasive, have a Constitutional option. We can call a Convention of States to return the country to its original vision of a limited federal government that is of, by and for the people.
In the same way that the States first gathered at a Constitutional Convention to establish the United States federal government, the States can gather in convention under Article V of the Constitution to limit that power. If the American people at the grassroots, mobilize to have a minimum of 40 States join the others, a Convention of States can be held successfully. the solution to federal overreach is in the power of the people.
Recently Allen West endorsed the project and in the month of April the states of Alaska and Florida joned Georgia and have passed the application for a convention of states. In Arizona the Senate Presdent, Andy Biggs, defeated the measure by not allowing the state Senate to vote on it. However, the people are behind it, so success is anticipated in 2015.
Legislation is underway in South Carolina and Missouri where the General Laws Committe passed the application on April 28. In New Mexico, the application was introduced as HR 2, but died in the Voters and Elections committee. Now is the time to get working together for the next legislative session in 2015.
