The Indiana Convention of States Team continues to build the grassroots and educate the public regarding Article V of the Constitution.
Congressman Marlin Stutzman was a guest speaker at a recent meeting held in Fort Wayne on Oct 20th, 2016. Congressman Stutzman’s experience as both a state and federal legislator gives him a unique perspective to point out the usurpation of power that has taken place by the federal government and can be corrected through a Convention of States.
Regional Captain Gary Hall also spoke about the need to repeal the 17th amendment. Gary explained [PDF] how the 17th amendment has led to the situation we now find ourselves in with the states having no voice. The group had good questions and came away from the meeting with an understanding of how this amendment can restore federalism.
Thanks to all who made this meeting a success!
