Article V Convention Process


Legislative History

March 11, 2015 Bill JRH 9 Had it's first reading and was referred to the Judiciary committee.  Follow the bill's progress and other bill details on the Vermont legislative web site.

JRH9 was discussed in committee but no vote was considered by Chairwoman (D) Maxine Grad. If you are in her district, Washington 7, please let her know that  it is the solemn duty of the States to protect the liberty of our people— particularly for the generations to come—by proposing Amendments to the Constitution of the United States through a Convention of the States under Article V.

Current Session

Rep. Robert (Bob) Helm, Rutland-3, will reintroduce the Resolution in this legislative cycle.  Check out the blog post here.

Talk to your Representative and Senator about cosponsoring the bill.

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 Vermont House district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find people in your district willing to contact their state legislator(s) in support of Convention of States legislation this 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?

I would like Vermont to be one of the 34 states that passes a resolution calling for a Convention of the States. You can find a copy of the draft resolution and a legislator’s handbook (which briefly explains the process and answers many questions) at www.conventionofstates.com.

I ask you to support the Convention of States Project and become either the lead sponsor or co-sponsor of a resolution in the next legislative session.

Thanks so much for your service to the people of our district.

Vermont House Representative Rob Helm (Rutland-3) Sponsors Convention of States Application!

RHelm.jpg

It's official! Representative Bob Helm (Rutland-3) has committed to sponsoring the Convention of States Project application in Vermont during the 2017 legislative session! This means that our Vermont legislators will have the opportunity to join their colleagues from sister states who have already passed applications for a state-led convention to propose constitutional amendments that will restrict federal power and restore power to the states.

Please take a moment to thank Representative Bob Helm for being a true patriot by leading this historic effort. And stay tuned! We will need to do our part as the grassroots to support Representative Helm's efforts by making phone calls and sending e-mails at key points in the legislative process. Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with me as we do our part to restore real self-governance in America. 

Please call (802) 828-2247 to leave Representative Helm a message thanking him for taking the lead on this and sponsoring our application. You can also email him at rhelm@leg.state.vt.us

Thank you for supporting the Convention of States!
