URGENT - Committee Hearing on HJR 3! Your help needed!

Virginia’s Convention of States resolution, HJR 3, will be voted on this Thursday morning, February 11th in a Special Subcommittee of the House Rules Committee. The Hearing was just announced (I wish they would give more notice!)

If it passes in the Subcommittee, HJR 3 will then receive a vote in the full Rules Committee, which may occur immediately after the Subcommittee hearing!

Please contact the Committee members (listed at the bottom) and ask them to vote in favor of HJR 3.

Can you make it to Richmond?  We need to pack the Hearing room! 

When:  Thursday, Feb. 11th, 7:30 a.m.

Where:  6th Floor, House Speaker's Conference Room, GeneralAssemblyBuilding, Richmond Capitol

Please attend if at all possibleI completely understand this is very short notice.  Virginia’s legislative Session moves fast! 

I truly appreciate your help in getting HJR 3 passed through Committee. 

Can’t attend the Hearing?  You can still help get the Committee to pass HJR 3.  Before 7:30 a.m. this Thursday (2/11), call and email the Committee’s Delegates, below.  Ask them to vote “YES” for the Convention of States resolution HJR 3.

Subject:    Vote YES on HJR 3

Dear Members of the House Rules Committee,

I urge you to vote YES for HJR 3, Convention of States! 

Our country’s Founders gave you the power to rein in the over-reaching federal government.  I ask you to use the solution the Founders gave you in the U.S. Constitution’s Article V.  Please call for a Convention of States to propose amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress

Please vote YES for HJR 3!

Sincerely,

[your name]
