We've done it! The Convention of States Project's application was officially filed in the Vermont legislature! Representative Bob Helm filed the application, seeking an amendment-proposing convention of the states to restore our Republic. Its official title will is J.R.H.3. “Joint resolution requesting Congress to call an Article V Convention of the states limited to proposing specific U.S. Constitutional Amendments”
Not familiar with Article V or the Convention of States Process? Check out this 3-minute video.
In conformity with the resolutions filed in many of the states in 2017 and already passed in 8 states, J.R.H.3. sets the agenda of the meeting to consider amendments that "impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress." The process has officially begun, and we will be keeping you updated at every step along the way. Please take a moment right now to contact your state legislators and ask them to support J.R.H.3.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
