Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: March 2, 2021 12:23 PM
From: Senator Cris Dush
To: All Senate members
Subject: Countermand Amendment
I am re-introducing an application to Congress for a single-subject Article V convention. The subject of this convention will be one amendment to the United States Constitution that will restore the tenth amendment sovereignty of the state legislatures and give state legislatures the authority to repeal, or countermand, any act of the President, Congress, the Supreme Court, and any regulation decision by a Federal Government agency when thirty state legislatures vote to repeal.

I believe the founding fathers gave us the Article V convention for the purpose of reining in an out-of-control Federal government. We, the Executive Branch, our municipal governments, our businesses and constituents have all felt the onerous pressure from federal overreach. It is time we use this powerful tool to build a better future for our Commonwealth and for our nation.

I would appreciate your support and consideration of this resolution.
