An Immediate Priority

On Feb 23 2017, HJR 03 Joint Resolution Calling for a Convention to Amend the Constitution of the United States was defeated on the Utah Senate Floor.  -- Nelson (House Sponsor) - Vickers (Senate Sponsor)  How did your Senator Vote? Go HERE to find out.


No Article V Convention Resolution went through the legislative process during Utah's 2018 session but the new  Utah Convention of States Project leader will be trying to convince our legislators to pass their application resolution in 2019

so they ALSO need to hear from us, AS WELL AS from as many like-minded friends and neighbors as possible!  

If your senator voted against in 2017 please make a point of contacting him/her to find out if she/ he still opposes an Article V and encourage him  to continue to stand strong against any such resolutions in the upcoming session.   If he voted  FOR HJR 3,  let him know how important this issue to you and share your expectations that he will oppose any and all such resolutions in the 2019 session.  You might also share a link to a favorite video or article.


Some members of our coalition are ALSO asking their state senators and representatives to sponsor/support resolution(s) to RESCIND any active call for a constitutional convention.  Are you aware that three states recently passed rescission resolutions?  Here are links to their documents: NEW MEXICO,  MARYLAND, NEVADA And here is a downloadable MODEL RESCISSION RESOLUTION.
