So much is happening around the country we wanted to give you a quick update before you head off for the weekend. Here's what's going on:
New Mexico leads the way.
The New Mexico House became the first legislative body to pass the Convention of States resolution yesterday on a vote of 36-27.
Four committee hearings, four committee victories.
An Arizona House Committee, an Indiana Senate Committee, a Tennessee House committee, and a New Mexico House committee all passed our resolution last week, giving our state teams a 4-0 record in committees in 2016!
26 states, 8 more expected.
There are currently 26 states considering our resolution, with eight more on the way. We'll let you know when those additional states file, but here is the current list: Arizona, California, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota (session not started yet), Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma (session not started yet), Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.
For the visual learners.
Here's a map to give you a picture of how far the Convention of States movement has spread. Blue states are currently considering, red states have passed our resolution.
