Great news! Your phone calls and emails worked!
Yesterday, the House and Governmental Affairs Committee PASSED SCR52, the Convention of States resolution, by a vote of 6-4. We now move onto the floor of the House. We anticipate a vote sometime next week. We will keep you updated on those developments.
I cannot thank you enough for what you did. We had reports from the various staff of these House members that they were getting "hundreds" of calls on this resolution. That is all because of YOU! You told these members that this was important to you, and they listened.
For now, please call these House members and THANK THEM for voting for the resolution in committee yesterday. Tell them we greatly appreciate their affirmative vote on this highly important piece of legislation.

Representative [Name], I just wanted to call and thank you for voting for SCR52, the Convention of States resolution. I believe that a Convention of States is essential to reigning in the power of the federal government. Thank you for your affirmative vote and I hope the other House members follow in your footsteps.
It's important we call out our legislators when they screw up, but its also important we THANK THEM for doing something right. This is one of those times we thank them for doing something right.
