Hawaii Action Prompt

Hawaii Action Prompt

The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

Join our team as a District Captain!

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Hawaii state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Get involved today by reaching out to your state legislators. Don't know what to say?

If you'd like a Convention of States leader to attend a meeting with you and your legislator, contact your state’s legislative liaison.

Hawaii Senate JDL Committee Considers COS Application!

We've done it Again In Hawaii!

The Convention of States Project's application is now officially filed in the Hawaii Senate!  On Friday, March 11th, Senator Sam Slom along with seven co-sponsoring Senators, filed the COS application in the Senate seeking an amendment-proposing convention of the states to restore our Constitutional Republic.

The official Senate Resolution number is SR80, along with its identical Senate Concurrent Resolution SCR114.

Now with resolutions filed in 38 other states in 2015 and already passed in 6 states, SR80 sets the agenda of the meeting to consider amendments to, 1) impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, 2) limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and,3) limit the terms of office for federal officials and for members of Congress.

This begins the process in the Senate!  This is the 3rd of 4 emails in this series you'll receive asking for your help to reach out to state legislators. Please take a moment right now to contact the Senate members on the Judiciary and Labor Committee and ask them to support Convention of States Resolution SR27 by bringing it to a committee hearing! 

Click on the links below to send an email to the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee members.  Then please call the members of that committee to declare your support for SR80 and SCR114.  Please be polite, respectful, and grateful for their service to Hawaii.  Suggested email text and phone script is below. 

Aloha Senator,

As a resident of Hawaii I want you to know I strongly support the Convention of States effort to rein in the power of the federal government and return that power to the States.  Since you are a member of the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee, I request you give Senate Resolution #80 and Senate Concurrent Resolution #114 a hearing in the JDL Committee and vote to send these resolutions to the floor of the Senate for passage.

Mahalo Nui Loa,
