Mississippi

Mississippi took quick strides towards passing the Convention of States application in 2015. Join with us and be a part of history in the making!

Rep. Chris Brown filed the resolution, HCR 78, with four co-sponsors. The resolution passed the House Rules committee before session ended on April 2.

The resolution will carry-over to next legislative season for a final vote in the House and Senate.

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 Mississippi 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?

Let the Senate hear from you!

As you may know, our COS President Mark Meckler and our Regional Director Ken Clark were in the Mississippi State Capitol on Thursday, March 31 to promote the Article V Convention of States Application in the Mississippi Legislature.  This is a request for your active followup support by doing one or more of the following, and time is of the essence.  The bill must clear the Rules Committee and pass both houses before this session ends on April 24, and with it our opportunity to become the seventh state to have passed an Article V Application.

Sen. Angela Hill is the sponsor of SC 657, and it must pass out of this Committee in order to advance.  The following Senators comprise the Senate Rules Committee: 
Please contact all of these Senators, preferably by phone, and ask them to support and co-sponsor SC 657.  After introducing yourself as one of the Senator's Mississippi constituents, you might make your request with a statement such as this:  

"I am calling to ask you to support and co-sponsor SC 657, the Article V Convention of States bill that has been introduced by Sen. Angela Hill.  And I want to thank you for your consideration of this request, and for your service to our great state as a Senator." 

And I thank YOU for your support of our Convention of States movement!  It will be my pleasure to hear from you and to serve with you in our great cause. 

Mississippi Rules Committee Members need to hear from you now!

Mississippi Rules Committee Members need to hear from you now!

We must make sure the members of the Rules Committee know how important our efforts are to the Republic.  The states joined together and using Article V are more powerful than Washington, DC. They need to consider HCR 86, and move it to the floor of the House for final consideration. They must vote YES on the Convention of States resolution to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on its officials.

Please pass HRC 86 - Our Constitutional solution to an overreaching Federal Government 

Delegate

I am concerned about over regulations, sky rocketing national debt and the state of our Republic. Please vote for HCR 86 and use Article V to call an amending convention to propose amendments to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. Our grandchildren and great grandchildren will never know the freedoms we did, if we do not act now!

Best Regards,

 

Please pass HCR 86 - To clarify our founders intent

Delegate,

Please support HCR 86 and vote to use Article V and join the other states to call for an amending convention to propose amendments to limit the power and jurisdiction, impose fiscal restraints and term limits for Congress and federal officials. Help put the “fence” back around our federal government.

Sincerely,
