We only have one major update this week. In the meantime, we're keeping our eyes peeled for future public hearings and work sessions on National Popular Vote, gun safety, and tribal sovereignty.
Avoiding the potential for disaster:
- SP 705 — Article V Constitutional Amendment: This is a joint resolution that could trigger two Article V Conventions to amend the U.S. Constitution, where one seeks to establish term limits for Congress and the other addresses money in politics and overturns the disastrous Citizens United decision. A quick recap: The League opposes term limits, and we stick up for campaign finance reform. However, we oppose SP 705 because we think the Article V conventions won't be representative of the people, it'll open up an entire can of worms, and we don't know what could happen. The resolution was reported out of the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee with a majority "Ought to Pass" report, and it now goes to the Senate floor. We'll watch this one closely.
