   Originated in: House of Representatives

   Text of measure: https://leg.mt.gov/bills/2021/billhtml/HJ0013.htm

   Notes: The measure had a committee-hearing Feb. 24 -- and the committee ended up tabling it! In Montana, "In addition to setting aside bills that are later taken up, this motion ['tabling' the bill] is traditionally the motion used [by a committee] to dispose of a bill without requiring consideration by the Committee of the Whole." So, this seems likely to have killed the resolution; anyway. it must get out of the committee by 5/26, or it will miss the Crossover Deadline (for the House to transmit it to the Senate)!!

   Text of measure: https://leg.mt.gov/bills/2021/billhtml/SJ0002.htm

   Notes: Had a hearing on Jan. 22, 2021. The vote came later, on Jan. 26 -- and GOOD NEWS!! The committee voted 7-4 to "table" the resolution: in Montana, "In addition to setting aside bills that are later taken up, this motion ['tabling' the bill] is traditionally the motion used [by a committee] to dispose of a bill without requiring consideration by the Committee of the Whole." So, this seemed likely to have killed the resolution. However, on Feb. 9 the Senate voted to "take the measure from its committee"! And the next day, they voted on a motion of passing it (to the House); but thankfully, it failed, 24-26!! And then they voted 31-19 to postpone it indefinitely!! Now nothing can salvage it except a delayed vote to reconsider -- but reconsidering it would require a 2/3 majority -- which ain't gonna happen!! YAY!!!

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

   Model Resolution: Convention of States

   Description: To apply for a convention of states under Article V of the Constitution of the United States to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and to limit the terms of office for federal officials and members of Congress

   Originated in: House of Representatives

   Date introduced: 2021-01-19

   Committee it's currently in: https://sdlegislature.gov/Session/Committee/498/Detail

   Status page: https://sdlegislature.gov/Session/Bill/21936

   Text of measure: https://sdlegislature.gov/Session/Bill/21936/211655

   Notes: At its committee hearing on Feb. 1st 2021, HJR 5001 was voted down -- and THEN, "deferred to the 41st Day" -- which means, the committee cannot take it up again that session! (The 41st legislative day is the day after the session closes!) So, the only way it can reach the House floor is if at least 24 representatives vote to "smoke it out" of committee -- which to happen, must occur within three legislative days -- which it didn't!! YAY -- this thing looks dead!!!


SJR501

   General aim: Rescission of some, or all, of this state's applications for Congress to call an Article V convention

   Description: Rescinding House Joint Resolution 1001, adopted in 2015 calling for a constitutional convention for a federal balanced budget

   Originated in: Senate

   Date introduced: 2021-01-21

   Status page: https://sdlegislature.gov/Session/Bill/21803

   Text of measure: https://sdlegislature.gov/Session/Bill/21803/212335

   Notes: This measure was originally scheduled for a committee hearing Feb. 1; but then they "rescheduled" (postponed) it, to be at the Committee's hearing on Mon. Feb. 8. The committee voted to "report it out of committee without" any recommendation (for or against). Next it went to the Senate floor -- where, on Feb. 9, unfortunately but JUST BARELY it was voted down (17-18). Never mind -- We'll get 'em next time!!

   Text of measure: https://sdlegislature.gov/Session/Bill/22435/215771

   Notes: This one had a committee hearing on 2/24/21 -- and, GOOD NEWS!!! The vote to pass the measure FAILED, and then a vote to "Defer the measure to the 41st legislative day" PASSED!! Now, the only way it's likely to survive is if the Senate votes to "smoke it out" of committee -- but that can happen only "if no more than three legislative days have passed since the committee reported that the bill or resolution was tabled or deferred to the 41st legislative day", and only "if the motion is supported by the vote of one-third or more of the members-elect"!! It would appear that the first legislative day next week is their last chance to do that!! Let's tell the Senate that would be a BAD MOVE!!!
