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:

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!!
Iowa-SJR11 A subcommittee of the Senate State Government Committee has recommended passage of this Con-con measure! And though Iowa has now adjourned its 2019 Regular Session, measures carry over to 2020! 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, 2019; and on Mar. 20, it voted to recommend its adoption! And, though the legislature has now adjourned its 2019 Regular Session, active measures carry over to 2020! Let's contact the whole House of Representatives, and tell them why they must "VOTE NO on HCR 5009 !!"
Massachusetts-H3208 This measure had a committee-hearing on 9/24/2019! Let's contact the committee members and tell them why an A5C is not, at present, WORTH THE RISK!!
Massachusetts-H3213 This measure had a committee-hearing on 9/24/2019! Let's contact the committee members and tell them why an A5C is not, at present, WORTH THE RISK!!
Massachusetts-S2163 This resolution gives Congress 6 months from the date of its passage, to submit an acceptable amendment to the states for ratification; else, this resolution will constitute an application for an Article V convention. This measure had a committee-hearing on 9/24/2019! Let's contact the committee members and tell them why an A5C is not, at present, WORTH THE RISK!!
Nebraska-LB451 ALERT!!! This measure was 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!!" (For the membership, see http://news.legislature.ne.gov/gov/ -- the Dems' emails are: cblood@leg.ne.gov; mhansen@leg.ne.gov; mhunt@leg.ne.gov; rkolowski@leg.ne.gov; the Repubs' emails are: tbrewer@leg.ne.gov; mhilgers@leg.ne.gov; alagrone@leg.ne.gov; jlowe@leg.ne.gov;) Although Nebraska's 2019 Regular Session has now ended, all measures will carry over to the 2020 Regular Session.
Nebraska-LR7 ALERT!!! This measure was 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!!" (For the membership, see http://news.legislature.ne.gov/gov/ -- the Dems' emails are: cblood@leg.ne.gov; mhansen@leg.ne.gov; mhunt@leg.ne.gov; rkolowski@leg.ne.gov; the Repubs' emails are: tbrewer@leg.ne.gov; mhilgers@leg.ne.gov; alagrone@leg.ne.gov; jlowe@leg.ne.gov;) Although Nebraska's 2019 Regular Session has now ended, all measures will carry over to the 2020 Regular Session.
Nebraska-LR9 LR 9 was scheduled for a hearing Mar. 13, 2019 at 1:30 pm, in Room 1507, by its current committee (see committee-link). CONTACT the committee-members, tell them why they MUST "Vote NO on Con-con call LR 9 !!" Although Nebraska's 2019 Regular Session has now ended, all measures will carry over to the 2020 Regular Session.
Pennsylvania-HR206 This measure is through with committees in its house of origin, and a floor vote is imminent. This Con-con call was heard by House committee on Oct 22, 2019. And on Dec. 16, that committee voted in favor. NOW it's time to contact all PA House members (Representatives), and tell them HR206 IS A DANGEROUS, NO GOOD, VERY BAD idea!! (You can tweet all the Republican House members at this address and refer to "PA HR206": @PAHouseGOP !)
Pennsylvania-SR234 This Con-con call was to be heard by Senate committee on Tues., Oct 22, 2019!! Contact the committee members and say, "VOTE NO on SR234!!"
West Virginia-SCR4 This measure has already passed its house of origin. On Jan. 20 (one week after introduction!) this measure passed its Senate committee; and its floor vote came only two days later (Jan. 22)!!! Now it's in the House of Delegates Judiciary Committee! PLEASE CONTACT ALL W.V. STATE DELEGATES and tell them not only are "term limits" a self-defeating move -- since it releases legislators from accountability to voters during their last term; but also, and more importantly, an A5C (Article V Convention) is TOO RISKY!!!
Wisconsin-AJR77 This measure had a public hearing on Nov. 13, 2019!! The Executive Session, where they'll vote, will be Thurs., Jan. 23 at 11:00 AM (North Hearing Room (2nd Floor North))!! Contact the committee members and tell them a Convention of States is just a ploy, and is DANGEROUS for our Constitution!!!
Wisconsin-SJR57 This measure had a public hearing on Oct. 3, 2019!! Contact the committee members and tell them a Convention of States is just a ploy, and poses GREAT DANGER for our Constitution!!!

   Notes: Originally referred to the Committee on Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House, on April 15, 2019 it was withdrawn from that committee and referred to the Committee on Regulatory Reform. The next day (!) that committee reported favorably on the measure; and it was re-committed to its original committee. Let's contact the members of that committee (see link), and let them know that 1) the Convention of States has been lying to legislators about how much support they have, and 2) they're misleading them also in saying that those legislators can control (at all) an Article 5 Convention!!
