Dear Honorable Ohio Representatives:

Yesterday 10 Ohio Citizens gave opposing testimony to HJR 8, which would apply to Congress for an Article V constitutional convention. On Tuesday the Senate introduced its companion version SJR 9. I understand the legislation in both houses to be progressing quickly.

The ramifications of an Article V convention are very real and very serious so I am asking that you please review the four part video: Beware Article V which is located at http://www.principledpolicy.com/ before casting your vote in the Judiciary Committee to send this legislation to the floor for a full House vote.

It is important to discern the wisdom of this drastic, unprecedented action and this video will give you the facts about 1.) the plain language of Article V; 2.) the historical precedent from our nation’s only Constitutional Convention and 3.) the consensus opinion from legal scholars, who agree that an Article V convention creates an imminent peril to the well-established rights of the citizens and the duties of various levels of government.
