A very important meeting is being held in Washington this week, but career politicians, lobbyists and most in the media don’t want you to know about it.
More than 100 state legislators from around the country are meeting at the Naval Heritage Center. The Assembly of State Legislatures (ASL) will discuss the rules for the first-ever Article V Constitutional amendment convention. This is their third meeting. They’re preparing to take on Washington, and Congress doesn’t like it.
The Framers of the Constitution had the foresight to anticipate what Congress has become: a dysfunctional mess. In Article V they wisely provided a means for the states to step in and amend the Constitution largely without congressional approval.
The state legislators in ASL are determined to convene an amendment convention. Our situation is that dire.
