We have great news from Arizona!
The Arizona House passed the Convention of States Article V application last week by a vote of 32-26.
Our team in AZ did a great job this year spreading the word about the Convention of States movement and building support within the legislature; and our sponsor, Representative Kelly Townsend, was an invaluable asset in the House.
"The states are about to take their freedom back," said Linda Brickman, Arizona's Legislative Liaison. "The federal government, through many different administrations, has been encroaching on our liberties as citizens and states. We need to protect and preserve our Constitution as our founding fathers created it. Let’s step forward and stand up to the Supreme Court and full federal government. Let’s become a States United once again through an Article V Convention of States."
Our application in Arizona -- HCR 2003 -- is now going to the Senate, and you can do two things to help Arizona become the fourth state to pass the Convention of States application:
1. Write emails and make calls to your senator reminding him or her that Article V is a tool given to them in the Constitution to restore the balance of federalism.
2. Send emails and make phone calls to Senate President Andy Biggs, requesting him to follow the Arizona GOP platform and put HCR 2003 on the floor.
