South Carolina

Two Legislators Undermine Victory in South Carolina

WE NEED YOUR HELP IN SOUTH CAROLINA!

We are ever so close to passing our Convention of States Project resolution and having South Carolina become the 7th state to pass this historic Article V application. We have the votes in both chambers to pass the resolution on the chamber floor. Unfortunately we are being held up in both our House and Senate by two individuals. We thought we could get this done on our own, but the time has come to ask our sister states to help us. We need MASSIVE pressure put on the two individuals below for the reasons I will describe for each:

State Senator Brad Hutto (803) 534-5218.

South Carolina State Senator Brad Hutto is single-handedly holding up the Convention of States Project resolution S 198. Last year when our historic resolution passed the full Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Hutto exercised the ridiculous rule in the South Carolina legislature that permits a single member of the minority party (Democrats) to hold up a bill from getting to a vote on the floor of the Senate. We have the votes to pass our historic resolution in South Carolina to become the 7th state to join the effort to rein in the out of control and staggering power drunken federal government. Please call District 40 Senator Brad Hutto and ask him to remove the Minority Report on the Convention of States Project resolution S 198. Tell him all we want is a chance for an up or down vote on the floor of the Senate…tell him to let the legislative process work. Also, please let him know that we want him to not only remove his minority report but that we want him to ensure that no other Democrat does the same thing once he removes it. If you are speaking to his secretary, ask her politely to please give him that message. Please be firm but respectful. If you are identified as an out of state caller, please let them know that this is a national effort and you have a stake in saving our country.

Please contact Senator Hutto at (803) 534-5218on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday….whichever day you get this message, or the next day. If you can call more than one day that would be even better….but definitely call on the very next day after you receive this Call to Action. If you are speaking to his secretary, ask her politely to please give him that message. Let him know that you want him to remove his Minority Report from S 198. Please be firm but respectful. If you are identified as an out of state caller, please let them know that this is a national effort and you have a stake in saving our country.

PLEASE DO THIS…..this is HUGE for us in South Carolina.

State Representative Greg Delleney (803) 581-2211:

South Carolina State Representative Greg Delleney is one of the members of five members of the Constitutional Law subcommittee. Rep. Delleney also happens to be the chairman of the full House Judiciary Committee. Our resolution on the House side has languished in the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Constitutional Law now since last year. Last year we went through three full hearings…and over FIVE HOURS of testimony…both for and against. It has become very apparent to us that Rep. Delleney is the holdup. He has been opposed to the Convention of States Project from the beginning due to the same old argument of a “runaway convention”. Rep. Delleney has vacillated back forth with us on this…indicating at one point to us that he was “moving” our way…we had former United States Senator Tom Coburn sit down with him and explain this out to him. We had renowned Constitutional scholar Michael Farris come down here and sit in Rep. Delleney’s office and explain this to him. And now we feel like he is simply playing us to run out the clock this year.

Please call Rep. Delleney at (803) 581-2211 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday…whichever day you get this message, or the next day. If you can call more than one day that would be even better, but definitely call on the very next day after you receive this Call to Action. If he is not there, give the above message to his secretary or leave a detailed voicemail. Make it clear to him that you are sick of this holdup of H 3177 in the Judiciary Committee and that you want it to go to the floor for an up or down vote. If you are speaking to his secretary, ask her politely to please give him that message. Please be firm but respectful. If you are identified as an out of state caller, please let them know that this is a national effort and you have a stake in saving our country.

PLEASE DO THIS…..this is HUGE for us in South Carolina.
