Tell them to ASK Sen. Cowsert WHY his SR 29 -- a BBA-A5C application -- says it can be aggregated with six decades-old A5C applications that are explicitly limited to no topic whatever!!! Though the 2021 Regular Session has adjourned, all Georgia measures carry over to 2022.

   Notes: This Convention of States (COS) measure had a very strange run, from the Senate Federal & State Affairs Committee, thru the Senate (May 4th & 5th), then BACK to the committee! This was all because Kansas's constitution requires a 2/3 (two-thirds) majority, in order to pass a measure applying for an Article V convention: COS was trying to get the Senate to pass it anyway, by claiming this part of the Kansas constitution violates the U.S. Constitution! (Even the Kansas Atty. Gen'l. supported this nonsense; but David Super and other eminent law professors called it what it was!!) Since it appeared that the Senate President might let this travesty succeed, it was left to Sen. Olson to move to send the measure back to the committee; and thankfully, his motion passed! THIS MEASURE IS STILL LIVE, AND CARRIES OVER to 2022!

HCR51

   General aim: Application for Congress to call an Article V convention

   Description: Calls for a convention to amend the United States Constitution to establish a limitation on terms for members of congress

   Originated in the: House of Representatives

   Date introduced: 2021-04-28

   Status page: https://www.legis.la.gov/legis/BillInfo.aspx?s=21RS&b=HCR51&sbi=y

   Text of measure: https://www.legis.la.gov/legis/ViewDocument.aspx?d=1223924

   Notes: After passing the House on 5-24-2021, HCR 51 was heard by its Senate committee (on Senate and Governmental Affairs) on Wed., June 2; and that committee "reported favorably" on the measure! THEN it was down to the Senate, to pass this measure or defeat it! BUT THEN, during the debate on it, a wonderful thing happened: Sen. Morris moved to "lay" HCR 51 "on the table" -- and his motion passed!! The beauty of which is, when that motion passes in Louisiana, the rules say that it cannot be reconsidered, and (even more beautiful!) Senate Rule 11.10 says that once a motion (such as to pass HCR 51) has been laid on the table, IT CAN'T BE TAKEN UP AGAIN!! This one's DEAD!! :D

LR14

   General aim: Application for Congress to call an Article V convention

   Model Resolution: Convention of States

   Description: Resolution to Congress for convention of the states to propose amendments to the United States Constitution

   Date introduced: 2021-01-08

   Status page: https://nebraskalegislature.gov/bills/view_bill.php?DocumentID=43688

   Text of measure: https://nebraskalegislature.gov/FloorDocs/107/PDF/Intro/LR14.pdf

   Notes: This measure's history of backroom deals and underhanded maneuvers -- resulting in its FINAL PASSAGE Jan. 28, 2022 -- is almost too disgusting to relate -- but here's some of it: The measure had a first hearing, by its committee (Government, Military and Veterans Affairs), on Feb. 10, 2021. And Sen. Halloran made it his "priority" bill. But since it didn't get passed out of committee, he had to make a "pull" motion, on the Senate floor, and hope it would pass, in order to see his measure get to the Senate floor for a vote. He tried this on April 23 (2021). But this "pull" motion needed a "Constitutional Majority" of 25 votes (majority of the senators elected) to succeed; and he got only 23 votes! And, according to the Senate Rules, not even a motion for "reconsideration" could save this measure: Rule 3, Sec. 20 (d), puts it this way: "Any time any member attempts to take a bill from committee [via 'pull' motion] to be placed on General File, the bill shall stand indefinitely postponed and shall not be subject to reconsideration if the motion fails to receive a majority vote of the members elected to the Legislature." AH, but the nefarious, duplicitous COS team was not finished with LR14: Sen. Flood moved to SUSPEND the rule -- thus, making LR14 NO LONGER "indefinitely postponed". He needed 30 votes to accomplish this feat. And, almost unbelievably, the COS team managed to scrape 30 votes together -- passing Sen. Flood's motion, on May 25 (Y: 30 N: 14 NV: 2 Abs: 3)!! Then, since Sen. McCollister had recently made a "deal" to vote for it (finally) if it came back to its committee, it passed committee, after years of being stuck there!! So, the measure went to the Senate "General File"; however, on Jan. 10, 2022, the Senate voted to send it to "Select File"; and shockingly, the opponents (mostly Democrats) seemed to cave, basically, at that point (!!): rather than bother with 4 hours of filibustering, they settled for a sunset clause!! From there on, the writing was on the wall...

Now it's in the Committee on Rules and Operations of the Senate -- where we need to put the brakes on it, by warning ALL N.C. state senators of the extreme danger, in the current environment, of calling an A5C!!!

   Notes: Only the night before, this measure was suddenly scheduled for a Senate committee hearing Tuesday, Dec. 14 (2021) -- meaning not only that they felt they could pass it thru committee, but also -- probably -- that they hoped to rush it thru the Senate THE SAME WEEK! At any rate, having passed committee, it's now on the Senate Calendar for Mon., Jan. 24, 2022 (https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/SessionCalendars/CurrentCalendar.cfm?txtType=HTM&CalendarTypeId=2&Chamber=S&SessInd=0&IsMarked=N)!! Let's tell the PA Senators that NO ARTICLE V CONVENTION is a good idea AT ALL, just now!!!

   Notes: We might call this measure a "Time Machine" Con-con application (along the lines of Utah HJR 9): it claims that -- according to its "creative counting" of applications a la Natelson -- Congress must call an A5 Convention because 43 years ago, in February 1979, applications from 34 states were current and unrescinded, which Congress should count towards a BBA A5C!

   Notes: Having passed the House quickly (Jan. 25, 2022), then at the committee hearing on 1/24/22, this measure was "deferred to the 41st Day"; but the Senate voted to "smoke it out of committee"; and the committee reported it out without any recommendation, on Feb. 7. But it was out of steam, at that point: the Senate's vote to put the measure on the calendar FAILED, by 16-19!! IT'S TOAST - YAY, TEAM!!!

   Text of measure: https://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/112/Bill/HJR0008.pdf

   Notes: This one had a subcommittee hearing March 3, 2021 -- and then a hearing by its main committee March 9 -- who recommended it for passage!! Then, on April 8th, the House passed it!! Now in the Senate, it's made its way to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where it was origianlly scheduled for a HEARING Tuesday, February 15, 2022; however, they chose to defer it to a meeting for March 8th! SO: Let's TELL the WHOLE Tennessee Senate, that an Article V convention is a BAD idea (and, SO ARE TERM LIMITS, for that matter)!!

   Description: Joint Resolution Demanding Congress to Call an Article V Convention of States

   Originated in the: House of Representatives

   Text of measure: https://le.utah.gov/~2022/bills/static/HJR009.html

   Notes: We might call this measure a "Time Machine" Con-con application: it claims that -- according to its "creative counting" of applications (a la Natelson) -- Congress must call an A5 Convention because 43 years ago, in February 1979, applications from 34 states were current and unrescinded, which Congress should count towards a BBA A5C! But here's the GOOD news -- as reported, Feb. 8, by the Chair of the committee that considered it: "The Judiciary Committee has tabled H.J.R. 9, JOINT RESOLUTION DEMANDING CONGRESS TO CALL AN ARTICLE V CONVENTION OF STATES, by Representative K. Ivory, and has returned it to the Rules Committee for filing. Respectfully, Jon Hawkins, Chair" (of the House Judiciary Committee)! YESSSS!!!

   Notes: What a strange course this one took, just before the session ended! (Remember, bills left pending in the House can carry over to 2022!) The measure had a hearing Feb 26, in the Senate Judiciary Committee -- and they passed it, March 1st. Then the whole Senate passed it, three days later! Then it was in the House Judiciary Committee, and SCHEDULED FOR A HEARING on Monday, April 5th; they passed it, but not before someone tried to amend a whole Convention of States A5C application INTO this DELEGATES bill!! Fortunately, that amendment was rejected by the House Speaker (I believe it was), who ruled it "not germane"! Then the House passed it -- but with a minor amendment that entailed that it must go back to the Senate for reconciliation -- and all this is happening on the day before the session ends!! Well, stunningly, the Senate sponsor of the measure tries the same trick -- he gets a whole Convention of States application right into the bill! But that meant it must go BACK to the House -- on the last day of the session; and for lack of time or some other reason, it never came up on the House floor, before the midnight cutoff!! And now, the 2021 Regular Session has ended; so, for all intents and purposes, this one is DEAD! (YAY!!!)

   Notes: This measure was heard Tues. Oct. 26, 2021, before the Senate Committee on Government Operations, Legal Review and Consumer Protection -- and, the committee passed it. Then the whole Senate passed it -- on Jan. 25 -- and it's gone to the Assembly of Representatives! Let's educate all the Wisconsin state representatives, NOW, about the prohibitive danger of an A5C!!
