Measures active, in Congress or state legislatures,
that we are opposing  in our
"Expose the Article V Con-con Fraud" campaign


 

Measures That Require Urgent Attention:

Arizona-HCR2022 This measure has already passed its house of origin. The House Federal Relations Committee heard HCR 2022 on Feb. 13, 2019. They voted to pass it; and on Feb. 18, the Rules Committee did likewise. On Monday, Mar. 4, it passed Third Reading in the House; since there was no motion to Reconsider, it's now in the Senate! Please contact all Arizona state senators, and tell them a Con-con would risk all our rights --and to "VOTE NO on HCR 2022!!"
Arizona-SCR1014 This measure is through with committees in its house of origin, and a floor vote is imminent. SCR 1014 passed the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tues., Feb. 26; and the Senate Rules Committee passed it the next day! Please contact all Arizona state senators and tell them why they must "VOTE NO on SHR 109 and any other Con-con calls!!"
Georgia-SR237 This measure has already passed its house of origin. One Feb. 28, the Senate Rules Committee reported "favorably" for SR 237! And on Mar. 7, it passed the Senate! It's now in the House Rules Committee. And although Georgia has ended its 2019 Regular Session, it carries measures over to 2020 -- so, we need to keep an eye on this one, and the other Georgia A5C measures!!
Hawaii-SCR131 This measure has already passed its house of origin. On Mar. 19, the JDC had a hearing on SCR 131: "The committee(s) on JDC recommend(s) that the measure be PASSED, UNAMENDED." Then on April 1, it passed the Senate! It's now in the House Judiciary Committee (see link). Please contact the Committee's members, and tell them why they MUST "VOTE NO on SCR 131, and any other Con-con call that shows up!!!"
Iowa-SJR11 A subcommittee of the Senate State Government Committee has recommended passage of this Con-con measure! PLEASE contact all members of the committee (see committee-link) and ask them to "VOTE NO on SJR 11 -- to defend and uphold our Constitution!!!"
Kansas-HCR5009 This measure is through with committees in its house of origin, and a floor vote is imminent. The House Federal & State Affairs committee heard HCR 5009 on March 13; and on Mar. 20, it voted to recommend its adoption! Let's contact the whole House of Representatives, and tell them why they must "VOTE NO on HCR 5009 !!"
Missouri-SCR8 This measure is through with committees in its house of origin, and a floor vote is imminent. The measure's Senate committee (see committee-link) held a hearing on this measure on Feb. 26. And on Mar. 12, the committee recommended "Do Pass"! Please contact all Missouri state senators and tell them, "VOTE NO! on SCR 8, SCR 15, and any other measures that call for--or purport to control--an Article V Convention!!"
Missouri-SCR15 This measure is through with committees in its house of origin, and a floor vote is imminent. The measure's Senate committee (see committee-link) held a hearing on this measure on Feb. 26. And on Mar. 12, the committee recommended "Do Pass"! Please contact all Missouri state senators and tell them, "VOTE NO! on SCR 8, SCR 15, and any other measures that call for--or purport to control--an Article V Convention!!"
Montana-HJ25 HJ25 had a hearing on Feb. 26; at that time, the House State Administration committee decided to "TABLE" HJ25, which motion means "Consideration of bill or resolution is set aside. Consideration may be resumed at the will of the committee. In addition to setting aside bills that are later taken up, this motion is traditionally the motion used to dispose of a bill without requiring consideration by the Committee of the Whole. However, the full house can vote to remove the bill or resolution from the committee." So, let's keep up pressure on the whole Senate: tell them why they must "VOTE NO on HJ25, and any other Con-con calls!!"
Nebraska-LB451 ALERT!!! This measure is to have a committee-hearing Fri., Feb. 1, 2019, at 1:30 PM!! Please contact all the committee-members, especially Republicans, and tell them "VOTE NO on LB451!!"

Nebraska-LR7 ALERT!!! This measure is to have a committee-hearing Fri., Feb. 1, 2019, at 1:30 PM!! Please contact all the committee-members, especially Republicans, and tell them "VOTE NO on LR7!!"

New Hampshire-HCR6 This measure's House committee (State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs) had a hearing on the measure Wed., Feb. 6. In their Executive Session on Mar. 6, they voted to "Retain [the measure] in Committee". This is a good sign -- but it means simply that the committee decided to "retain the bill for further work during the second year of the legislative session". So let's CONTACT ALL committee members, and tell them why they should "VOTE NO on HCR6!!" ( Josh.Adjutant@leg.state.nh.us; Amanda.Bouldin@leg.state.nh.us; Ryan.Buchanan@leg.state.nh.us; Fred.Davis@leg.state.nh.us; Joyce.Fulweiler@leg.state.nh.us; Patricia.Klee@leg.state.nh.us; Latha.Mangipudi@leg.state.nh.us; Linda.Massimilla@leg.state.nh.us; Israel.Piedra@leg.state.nh.us; Craig.Thompson@leg.state.nh.us; Anne.Warner@leg.state.nh.us; al.baldasaro@leg.state.nh.us; Joel.Desilets@leg.state.nh.us; pkatsakiores@comcast.net; richard.lascelles@leg.state.nh.us; Qtipnh@aol.com; dick.marple@leg.state.nh.us; JP.Marzullo@leg.state.nh.us; Reed.Panasiti@leg.state.nh.us; skip@lavalleys.com )

(you can see the text which passed the whole House here: https://www.azleg.gov/legtext/54leg/1R/bills/HCR2001H.htm ) So, NEVER MIND!

   Text of measure: ftp://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/bills/2019R/Public/SJR3/SJR3012820191339.pdf

   Notes: The measure went rushing through--on skids pre-greased! The Senate STATE AGENCIES & GOVT'L AFFAIRS Committee had a hearing on SJR 3 on Jan. 24 (2019); unfortunately, they passed it (5-1). The whole Senate amended it on 1/28 --and passed it the next day! In the House, the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs committee heard the measure on Feb. 6th --and passed it!! It hit a few speed bumps at that point; but after the House amended it, the Senate finally voted on Feb. 14, passing the amended version, and sending it to the Governor. This is the first COS measure passed since 2017! Let's slate it for well-deserved rescission!!

   Text of measure: https://leg.mt.gov/bills/2019/billhtml/HJ0025.htm

   Notes: HJ25 had a hearing on Feb. 26; at that time, the House State Administration committee decided to "TABLE" HJ25, which motion means "Consideration of bill or resolution is set aside. Consideration may be resumed at the will of the committee. In addition to setting aside bills that are later taken up, this motion is traditionally the motion used to dispose of a bill without requiring consideration by the Committee of the Whole. However, the full house can vote to remove the bill or resolution from the committee." So, let's keep up pressure on the whole Senate: tell them why they must "VOTE NO on HJ25, and any other Con-con calls!!"

HJR1005

   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: 2019-01-25

   Status page: http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=HJR1005&Session=2019

   Text of measure: http://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?File=HJR1005P.htm&Session=2019&Version=Printed&Bill=HJR1005

   Notes: Well, it LOOKED like good news... At HJR 1005's hearing on Feb. 6, the House State Affairs committee voted to defer the measure "to the 41st legislative day"--which normally means, they killed it... BUT!! The S.D. Legislature has a way to force a committee to cough up (so to speak) a measure they've so deferred. (It's similar to a "discharge petition," but it's called "Smoking out".) And they used that to force the committee to discharge HJR 1005! But then, the motion to put it on the House calendar FAILED... and no one has yet tried to have a reconsideration of that vote! And then -- better yet! -- the 2019 session ended, and there's no carry-over (to 2020)! YAY!!!
