We have an update. SCR52, the Convention of States resolution, has been scheduled for a vote on the House floor on Wednesday May 25th. This is the VERY LAST hurdle we must overcome before we become state #8 nationwide! Here is what we need you to do.
We have identified some legislators that could be shaky on this issue. We need you to call their offices and ask them to support SCR52, the Convention of States resolution. Remember to BE POLITE.

Here is an example of what you can say:
Representative [Name], my name is [your name]. I am calling to ask for your support for SCR52, the Convention of States resolution. I believe a Convention of States is essential to resorting the balance between the federal government and the states. I ask that you support SCR52, the Convention of States resolution, and help return power back to the states and local communities.
This is where it all comes down to. If we pass next Wednesday, we become state number 8! We need you to call these members we've identified above and make sure they hear your voice. Lets leave nothing to chance!
