In this great video, Convention of States (COS) admits an Article V Convention (LR14) will open every section of the Constitution! This is the same resolution Sen. Halloran has introduced in Nebraska through LR14. When the hearing is held, it will be important for you to show up and hopefully you will testify as to why we do not want to place our Constitution "at risk". Email Legislators to let them know how you want them to vote and why!

Robert Kelly, staff counsel for convention of states, explains that the resolution opens every section of the US Constitution. This is exactly why we say the resolution is an assault on our constitution.

Arthur Goldberg, Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court: “As we look forward to celebrate the bicentennial of the constitution, a few people have asked, why not another constitutional convention. I would respond that one of the most serious problems Article 5 poses is a runaway convention. There is no enforceable mechanism to prevent a convention from reporting wholesale changes to our constitution and Bill of Rights. Moreover, the absence of any mechanism to ensure representative selection of delegates could put a runaway convention in the hands of single issue groups whose self-interest may be contrary to our national well- being.”

Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Warren Burger: “I have also repeatedly given my opinion that there is no way to limit or muzzle the actions of a constitutional convention. The convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda. Congress might try to limit the convention to one amendment or one issue, but there is no way to assure that the convention would obey. After a Convention begins it will be too late to stop the convention if we do not like its agenda.”

“Whatever gain might be hoped for from a new constitutional convention could not be worth the risk involved. A new convention could plunge our nation into constitutional confusion and confrontation at every turn with no focus on the subject needing attention. I have discouraged the idea of a Constitutional convention. And I am glad to see states rescinding their previous resolutions requesting a convention. In these bicentennial years we should be celebrating its long life, not challenging its very existence.”

LR14 and LB195 have been introduced by Senator Halloran.

This is the "Convention of States" resolution, that if passed will endanger our U.S. Constitution.

The Government, Military & Veteran Affairs Committee has scheduled the hearing for 2/10/2021 for both.  Prepare your written testimony.  If you testify in person, take 12 copies with you.  DO NOT e-mail multiple addresses as they will not include in official record if you do!  If you wish to also e-mail senators, do so separately!

When submitting written testimony:

1.  E-mail written testimony to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. prior to noon on 2/9/2021. 

2.  Include your name and address

3.  Include the LR  or LB number

4.  Clearly state that you oppose LR14 and LB195 

5.  Request your testimony be included in the official hearing record.

Talk with your neighbors and write a letter to the Editor of your local newspaper to let them know why LR14 and LB195 are dangerous to the future of our Nation.

Points in Opposition to NEBRASKA LR6

I. How would LR14 change the U.S. Constitution?
LR14 is an application to Congress from Nebraska for Congress to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution to propose amendments, supposedly to limit the federal government. When Congress determines they have received 34 state applications, they are to call a convention; four states have passed “Convention of States”-sponsored applications to date.

“Convention of States Project (COS),” the sponsors of LR14, claim that the federal government has usurped the legitimate role of the States in the Constitution. They claim there are two Constitutions, the one we all know and love; and the one we are living under, as interpreted by the Supreme Court.

But this shows that the problem is not the Constitution; but that the Supreme Court violates it! In Federalist No 81 (8th paragraph), Hamilton says the remedy for federal judges who usurp power is to impeach them and remove them from the bench!

If the existing words are clear but the Supreme Court Opinions are wrong, how exactly would the Delegates to an Article V Convention change those words? Or how would amendments restore the "true" meaning of the Constitution: by expressly overturning the Supreme Court that "got it wrong"? And why would the courts comply with an amended Constitution when they twist definitions to avoid complying with the Constitution we have now?


Here is a great video that explains what is so dangerous about the "Article V Convention" being pushed by the Convention of States project. In Nebraska, the effort is LR14!

Listen to the video - and then call the State Senators! Tell them we want them to protect our Constitution and vote NO to LR14!

Rita Dunaway, staff counsel for the Convention of States Project ( COS), wrote an article, Five Myths about Article Five, which turns the Constitution on its ear. Ironically, her article challenges five premises that are true, while invoking at least nine myths of her own.

In fact, the very name "convention of states;' is being used by Article V convention advocates to deceive state legislators into thinking an Article V convention can be controlled by state legislatures; it cannot.
