The following is an appeal from an Arizona patriot to help in contacting their legislators to vote “No” on a Constitutional Convention (Con-Con).
Please forward this to your family and friends and please make the calls!
Click here for the Arizona Legislature and put the bill number in the upper right-hand corner. Search SCR1005, then enter Bill Overview to check the status.
SCR1005 has passed the Senate 16 to 14 and is ready to be voted on in the House Appropriations Committee.
SCR1005 will call for a Constitutional Convention, or an “Amendments Convention” to consider whether an increase in the federal debt should require approval from a majority of the legislatures of the states.
There is no way provided in Article V of the U.S. Constitution to limit the number of amendments which can be proposed in an “amendments convention,” even if the states, as in SCR1005, try to limit it. Article V states, “Congress…on the application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments…” (that’s amendments in the plural).
Please call and email, starting now. Let these Appropriation Committee members know how dangerous a Con-Con really is. You can find their contact information by clicking on their names here .
MESSAGE: Vote NO on SCR1005. Do not put our Constitution at risk by asking Congress to “call a Convention for the purpose of proposing amendments.” Article V of the Constitution does not provide any way to limit an “amendments convention.” If you are sincere about limiting the federal debt then refuse all federal funds coming to Arizona.
