 IMG_3161-1.jpg

We had a great day yesterday at the State Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee Hearing on SCR4! Pictured above is Michael Farris providing expert testimony in regards to our resolution and the Article V convention process.  

THANK YOU to everyone that came to the hearing and to those of you that wanted to come but were unable to attend! It was standing room only and most of the attendees were Convention of States supporters!  We are one step closer to passing SCR4 in New Hampshire and it is more important than ever for you to call the committee members below to ask them to vote "Ought to Pass." The committee will be voting on SCR4 next Thursday April 21st and we need you to make calls to the members listed below.  The opposition is pushing back very hard and we must continue to push back harder! 

IMPORTANT!

The State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee will be voting on SCR4 next Thursday and we need you to call all the committee members to urge them to vote "Ought to Pass."

Below is a suggested script to help you make your call and if you live in the district of any of these members please tell them you are a constituent.  Look up my legislator

The phone numbers and email addresses of the committee members are listed below.

Here are your Talking Points:

Call and say:  "I would like to speak with [Representative (last name. (If they are not available, try to schedule a time for you to speak with them directly. You can say the following whether you are speaking to the legislator directly or to their assistants).

If you live in their district:  "I am a constituent in your District and I am calling you today to let you know that I support the Convention of States Project and I want to know your position on the COS Resolution SCR4. Can the constituents in your district count on you to vote “Ought to Pass” on the Convention of States Resolution?"

If you don't live in their district:  "I am from New Hampshire and I am calling you today to let you know that I support the Convention of States Project and I want to know your position on the COS Resolution SCR4. Can I count on you to vote “Ought to Pass” on the Convention of States Resolution?"

If they answer "Yes, I support the Convention of States", Respond:  "Thank you.  I appreciate hearing that you are willing to stand with us and rein in the federal government through the only Constitutional solution that we have".

If they answer "No, I do not support the Convention of States project", Respond:  "I would like to know why you will not support the only constitutional solution we have to rein in our out of control federal government. I would much rather have you and my state legislature make the decisions for this state, than some far away DC bureaucrat in the federal government, and this is the only constitutional solution we have to do that."

Then Ask them: "What would it take for you to change your position on this issue?" (Please Stick to this question, “What will it take to change your position on the Convention of States resolution?” until you are able to get a definitive answer).

Whatever answer is given to the question above, Respond:  "Great, I will have the Convention of States volunteers in this district, or the national COS team get back with you to address your questions. Do you prefer they get back to you via phone or email? What is the best email or phone number to reach you to do that?" 

If they answer "I need more information", Respond:  "So, if I can get you more information that addresses your concerns, you would consider voting yes for the Convention of States resolution?"

If your Legislator says "YES", Respond:  "Great, I will have the Convention of States volunteers in this district, or the national COS team get back with you to address your questions. Do you prefer they get back to you via phone or email? What is the best email or phone number to reach you to do that?"

NEXT STEPS: Send an email to: kquinn@cosaction.com and put the Legislators name in the subject line. In the body of the email state:

1.) Your name and contact info.

2.) Your state and legislator's name.

3.) Summary of your conversation with your legislators position.

4.) Your legislators preferred method of follow up and contact info.

That’s it! Of course, it’s always best to use your own words and explain it however you feel most comfortable. We’ve provided this outline as a guide. Don’t feel like you have to follow it verbatim.

Thank you!
