Alabama joins Florida, Georgia, and Alaska and passes the Convention of States resolution

Convention of States – by Mark Meckler

The Alabama state motto is “We dare defend our rights,” and that sentiment was on display today in the Alabama State Capitol.

Earlier this afternoon, Alabama become the first state in 2015 to pass the Convention of States application to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

The Senate passed HJR 112 today, which had been first passed by the House a few weeks ago. Then, because of minor amendments to the resolution, it was sent back to the House where it passed by a vote of 92-7.  

A huge congratulations is in order for every Convention of States volunteer in Alabama. Their hard work and dedication is what made this victory possible, and we couldn’t be prouder of our team in the Yellowhammer State.

Terry Richmond, the Legislative Liaison for the Alabama team, had this to say about the victory:

“I’m overwhelmed by the support we received from both volunteers and legislators over the past few months. The dedication, vision, and prayers of every volunteer in the state, along with the hard work and commitment of our sponsors and their staff, is what made this victory possible. The people of Alabama should hold their heads high – they’ve implemented the Founders tool to fight federal overreach, and we’re one step closer to turning a Convention of States into a reality.”

We’d also like to thank every Alabama legislator who sponsored, co-sponsored, or voted in favor of our resolution. They passed HJR 112 by overwhelming majorities, sending a clear message to D.C. that the American people are tired of overreach and reckless spending.

Legislation is pending in many other states, with Texas and Kansas next in line. The citizens are speaking; it’s time for the states to put the federal government back in the box.

Sincerely,

Mark Meckler

    I hope this turns out to be as nice as it sounds, but in reality, I think the result will be state government protecting their control of the population from federal control of the population, meaning that they’re only struggling for the profits that are obtained by denying your individual rights.

    I see the state-federal dispute as very similar to the Republican-Democrat battle. They’re just fighting for the right to screw the people, and neither party is working for the people themselves.

    That would be Pandora’s Box, and there’s no ‘putting it back’.

    It must be thoroughly exterminated.

      Convention of States

      Great way to end the rights of the people alltogether.

      This must not be allowed, leave the US Constitution alone, only bad news will come of a Convention of States. Too much evil and too many ‘good men to do nothing’.
