Volunteers take the day at Indianapolis!
With the help of many volunteers, Convention of States Indiana has kicked off the 2016 legislative season with an incredible victory!
Pictured above are the two young men who stole the show at our committee hearing. On the left is Case, from Indiana Wesleyan University. On the right is Sam, an 18 year old high school student. It must have been intimidating to walk into that room and testify. They both gave compelling, articulate and optimistic testimony regarding the Convention of States Project. Even our biggest opponent gave them kudos and said they must have wonderful parents.
The Indiana Senate's Civil Law Committee passed the Convention of States resolution this morning with a 6-1 vote. This is the first in a series of important votes required to add Indiana to the list of states calling for a convention to limit the runaway power of D.C.
Convention of States volunteers filled the committee room, and their presence swayed a number of legislators who were still on the fence.
The next step for our resolution in Indiana -- SJR 14 -- will be a vote on the Senate floor, which will occur on or before February 4th.
If you live in Indiana, your state senator needs to hear from you! Click here to contact your state senator and ask them to vote YES on SJR 14.
