Efforts in securing applications for Convention of States have paid off once again.

Yesterday, May 25th, brought thrilling news. The Louisiana state legislature passed the Convention of States resolution on a 62-36 vote!

This makes Louisiana the eighth state in history to call for a Convention of States to finally, once-and-for-all halt the abuses of the federal government.

The bill number was SCR52 sponsored by Senator Dan Claitor with 11 Senate co-sponsors. Once we made it to the House floor, there was rigorous debate. Some members attempted to kill the legislation by inserting “poison pill” amendments into the resolution. However, our support in the House was simply too large for them to overcome.

Now the people of Louisiana have joined with Florida, Georgia, Alaska, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, and Oklahoma in this historic fight to restore the rightful authority of the people and the states.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott celebrated with us:

Will you join with Louisiana and help Gov. Abbott get Texas on board? Will you take the next step and become an official member of the Convention of States team in your state? We need to secure even more critical victories around the country.

For too long the “elite” in D.C. have acted with impunity, disregarding the will of We the People and crushing state sovereignty.
