As patriots on the front line for liberty, we need you to call out bad legislative behavior and poor leadership. A single Assemblyman in Nevada is holding the Convention of States resolution hostage. Believe it or not, the Constitution of Nevada actually requires Article V legislation like ours to be proposed and approved, yet because of his fear, Assemblyman Lynn Stewart is single-handedly stopping COS.
The public support for Convention of States in Nevada is overwhelming. Support is running three to one on the Nevada Legislatures website. Yet today, one Assemblyman stands in the way; Assemblyman Lynn Stewart.
Heres how you can help. We need you to let Assemblyman Stewart know that there are consequences to not following the law of the land and the will of the people. And he needs to know that the entire nation is watching his behavior...good or bad. If he does the right thing, hell be applauded. If not, the people will work their will against him in the long run.
So today we are asking you to send an email and call Assemblyman Lynn D. Stewart, the Chair of the Nevada Assembly Legislative Operations Committee. Urge him to bring AJR 7, The Convention of States Resolution, to a vote and move the Resolution to the Assembly floor immediately, before the window closes for Committees to pass legislation to the Assembly floor (now until Thursday 4pm PDT). Also, we need you to call and email the members of the committee listed below.
Remember, as always, Convention of States supporters communicate in a positive, productive and polite manner. Thats who we are, and regardless of our anger or frustration, thats how we behave. I know I can count on your support to call out unconstitutional behavior and make these calls now.

Don’t believe the liberal manure...
If there was ANY chance for a ‘runaway convention’ and liberal takeover THEY WOULD BE SCREAMING FOR IT TO HAPPEN.
Yes. At the federal level.
The same people who visited Harry Reid on New Year’s eve maybe should pay this person a visit. They can vote against it, but to procedurally prevent it from being voted on is Totalitarian.
Thanks. I emailed every member. If the COS movement is to fail, it will be due to leftist pressure on certain state pols who control the process.
“Lynn” Stewart? I guess daddy wanted a girl, huh “Lynn?”
Let your friends in Nevada know.
In the meantime, welcome to Maryland, where the desk drawer veto is a typical way of stymieing good legislation.
Desk drawer vetoes have their place in stopping mob rule, but mob rule is obviously not the case here.
“”It sounds like Nevada has some constitutional issues of their own if ONE person is able to single-handedly hold up a piece of legislation.”
Duhno Harry Reid been doing it for years.”
In general i find the idea of making it difficult pass a law to be a very good printable indeed after all it is laws that invariably usurp the rights of the people and it is better for almost all the people to agree to a law than any significant minority thereof to find themselves repressed by it.
I think to that end that if any law really needs to be passed it will upset so many of the people as to make obtaining from passing such a law unpalatable. The reality is most all laws that are passed are only really ‘needed’ because politicians and interest groups want them passed to effect their own ideological or financial goals.
