March 17, 2021 Article V Convention Legislative Progress Report
Five weeks have passed since my initial 2021 report. Thanks to Stu McPhail and the Article V Caucus for placing it on their website (http://articlevcaucus.com/news/the-article-v-convention-legislative-progress-report/), for forwarding it to our 7000+ state legislators throughout the country and for publishing a link to it on “Hunt for Liberty.”
As of this report, some 107 items of Article V legislation have been filed in 38 different states. That compares favorably to the activity we saw pre-COVID/2020.
U.S. Term Limits and COS Project are easily the most active groups. U.S. Term Limits has filed in 18 states with all resolutions currently “Active.” They passed the House in NC and WV, the Senate in GA, and are out of committee in the AZ House. COS has filed in 22 states with 17 remaining “Active.” I did not see where COS has made it out of any committees yet. WolfPAC is active in five states and BBA is active only in SC.
As pressure mounts in Washington to water down or abolish the Senate filibuster thus giving absolute power to the Democrats, one would hope that the conservative states could see that the Article V state-led amendment process is the last bastion of power left to those states to overcome and bring checks and balances back to our federal government.
Attached is the latest AVC Legislative Progress Report. Be sure to let me know if you see any missing items or if you have more updated information.
If I can ever be of assistance to any of you, please don’t hesitate to ask.
