STOP Arkansas' Deadly 2019 Con-Con Bill, SJR3

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



 

  

Heads up! The legislators are starting with dangerous resolutions already… and we’re barely into the new legislative session! They’ve drafted alarming legislation for an Article V Amendment (Con-Con) resolution, and it looks like on Thursday morning, January 24, 2019, this resolution calling for a constitutional convention will come up in the Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee.

 

THIS RESOLUTION DOES NOT NEED TO BE ALLOWED TO PASS OUT OF COMMITTEE!

It would fundamentally change our government… for the worse!

 

We should be outraged at the behavior of our Republican-led lawmakers for even allowing this legislation to be drafted! 

 

Part of the title of the Resolution is: “Applying to the United States Congress to call a convention for proposing amendments pursuant to Article V of the United States Constitution…”

 

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED:  Contact the Senators of the State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee listed below by phone and email, and ask them to VOTE NO on SJR3 because delegates would have the right, as recognized in the 2nd paragraph of our Declaration of Independence to throw off the Constitution we have and write a new constitution. This is unacceptable!

35

36 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the General Assembly adopts this 

 

SJR3 3 01/14/2019 04:16:26 PM MBM054 

 

1 application expressly subject to the following reservations, understandings, 

2 and declarations: 

3 (1) An application to the United States Congress to call an 

4 amendment convention of the states pursuant to Article V of the United States 

5 Constitution confers no power to the United States Congress other than the 

6 power to call such a convention. The power of the United States Congress to 

7 exercise this ministerial duty consists solely of the authority to name a 

8 reasonable time and place for the initial meeting of a convention; 

9 (2) The United States Congress shall perform its ministerial 

10 duty of calling an amendment convention of the states only upon the receipt 

11 of applications for an amendment convention for the substantially same 

12 purpose as this application from two-thirds (2/3) of the legislatures of the 

13 several states; 

14 (3) The United States Congress does not have the power or 

15 authority to determine any rules for the governing of a convention for 

16 proposing amendments called pursuant to Article V of the United States 

17 Constitution. The United States Congress does not have the power to set the 

18 number of delegates to be sent by any state to such a convention, nor does it 

19 have the power to name delegates to such a convention. The power to name 

20 delegates remains exclusively within the authority of the legislatures of the 

21 several states; 

22 (4) By definition, an amendment convention of the states means 

23 that states shall vote on the basis of one (1) state, one (1) vote; 

24 (5) A convention for proposing amendments convened pursuant to 

25 this application shall be limited to consideration of the topics specified 

26 herein and no other. This application is made with the express understanding 

27 that an amendment that in any way seeks to amend, modify, or repeal any 

28 provision of the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution shall not 

29 be authorized for consideration at any stage. This application shall be void 

30 ab initio if ever used at any stage to consider any change to any provision 

31 of the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution; 

32 (6) Pursuant to Article V of the United States Constitution, 

33 the United States Congress may determine whether proposed amendments shall be 34 ratified by the legislatures of the several states or by special state 

35 ratification conventions. The General Assembly recommends that the United 

36 States Congress select ratification by the legislatures of the several 

 

SJR3 4 01/14/2019 04:16:26 PM MBM054
