Requests for an Article V Convention MUST BE STOPPED in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire House members (mostly Republicans) have already introduced three Article V convention applications for 2018:
All three resolutions have a hearing scheduled before the House State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee on consecutive Wednesdays in January: HCR 12 on Jan. 17; HJR 4 on Jan. 24; and HCR 10 on Jan. 31.
Here is a list of sponsors of ALL the above:
HCR 10 – SPONSORS: Rep. Wallace, Rock. 33; Rep. Abear, Belk. 2
HCR 12 – SPONSORS: Rep. Wallace, Rock. 33; Rep. Howard, Belk. 8
HJR 4 – SPONSORS: Rep. Itse, Rock. 10; Rep. Ulery, Hills. 37; Rep. Hoell, Merr. 23; Rep. True, Rock. 4; Sen. French, Dist 7; Sen. Reagan, Dist 17
In this excellent JBS video (at 4:24), Robert Brown shows in 5 minutes the absurdity of a term limits amendment when he explains why it should be called the “Lame Duck Amendment.”
This article – Term limits: a palliative, not a cure and this article (HJR4) – The Proposed “28th Amendment”: Another Terrible Idea by PH explain why term limits and HJR4 are terrible ideas–they not only won’t solve the problem, they’ll create new ones.
HERE is a flyer explaining why NH legislators should oppose any Article V convention resolutions.
Please contact THE SPONSORS OF THESE BILLS, in addition to all 20 members of the House State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee and ask them to vote NO on HCR12, HJR4, and HCR10.
Find them HERE.
