HJ008 Introduced in the House!

“Things continue to evolve quickly. After the defeat of SJ0002 in the Senate Minerals committee yesterday, a new resolution has now been introduced in the Wyoming House of Representatives.

SJ0002 failed to pass committee because several Senators who support the 28th Amendment were uncomfortable asking for a limited convention of states to propose that amendment pursuant to Article V of the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, HJ0008, Free and Fair Elections, has now been introduced in the House, asking Congress to propose the needed amendment, not a convention of states.

We believe HJ0008 satisfies the concerns of the Senators who voted no on SJ0002, and therefore has a good chance of success. We are now awaiting a committee assignment in the House, and will update all of our volunteers when that assignment has occurred.

The text of the bill can be found at https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/HJ0008.”

We’re advocating for a 28th amendment to the United States Constitution to overturn the 2010 United States Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. FEC, and thereby create space for campaign finance reforms at the national and state-levels.
