There is a national movement to establish a "Convention of States" to amendment the Constitution, including right here in Minnesota with HF 2690. One of the State Representatives sponsoring the bill is from Washington County. Representative Matt Dean (R), who is known for his strong fiscal conservative record, as well as championing the reform of MNSure after it killed at least one Minnesotan, Gail Dunker. 38 states are required to assemble the convention according to article 5 of the US Constitution.
When they assembled in Philadelphia for the 1st Convention their original intent was to simply amend the Articles of Confederation and they ended up writing a whole new Constitution. Keep that in mind.
If you would be interested in a list of those MSB bills so you can check to see how your rep voted send an email with 2017MSB in the subject line to email@example.com. What kind of an Amendment or alteration to the Constitution could we possibly add that would inspire elected representatives to honor their oaths any more than they do now?
