Convention of States ACTION

There will be a rally on Wednesday, February 15th at the Capitol in Hartford in support of the required legislation approving Connecticut’s participation in a Convention of States.  For details and to register, go to this Convention of States ACTION CENTER

Since 2013 an effort has been underway to call a Convention of States, per Article V of the Constitution.  Nineteen states (excluding Connecticut) have passed the necessary legislation to participate; the minimum required is 34 states. The proposed amendments to the Constitution are limited to the following (3), and each is ultimately subject to ratification by 38 states to pass:

  • Impose fiscal restraints on the federal government
  • Limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government

  • Impose term limits on federal officials
