An Article V Amending Convention of States is on the move. Now no one can deny the Article V movement has truly swept the nation. The desire to curb the federal government's abuses is not limited to northern states or southern states, red states or blue states. Americans from all stripes realize something must be done, and they understand a Convention of States is the best way to do it.

The following states have submitted petitions in every house district: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

These states have submitted Bills for applications: Arizona, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Carolina, Virginia, Wyoming.

Twenty-Seven states are expected to pass bills in both houses before the end of this year. Three states, Alaska, Georgia, Florida; have already sent their applications in to Congress.

The march is on, we will not stop until we have at least 34 states applying for An Article V Amending Convention of States. We the people will regain the control of this out of control government.
