The Convention of States has big news.
Our resolution – HJR 1003 – failed to garner enough votes during the first consideration. But, at the request of the grassroots, Representative Michelle Gray courageously changed her vote and decided to stand with the people of Arkansas. She, along with Representatives Bob Ballinger and David Meeks, were instrumental in bringing about the motion to reconsider, which was approved by the House, 52-33.
Many thought our resolution in the state House had been defeated, but with the help of patriots like Sarah Palin, Bristol Palin, Mark Levin, and Sen. Tom Coburn, the citizens and legislators of Arkansas took a stand for liberty.
This is great news for the Convention of States Project, but even better news for America. Thank all of you for contacting your representatives at just the right time! (Way to go, Arkansas! Maybe now we can forgive you for giving us the Clintons!)
