SPEAKER #1: The Convention of States (COS)
Bill Harenburg, Regional Captain
The Convention of States (COS) is a national organization of ALL Americans, from all parties, ethnicities, economic classes, religions, and all regions of the country driven to have the people’s voices heard over that of the Washington elite and big government. The Constitution of the United States defines that the power of America is through the will of its people and our legislators have been elected to do the will of the people. The Convention of States has been implemented 41 times throughout our country’s history. In modern times both the balance of power and the views and needs of the American people, have been overshadowed by the political machine that has become Washington, DC. But through the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, our Constitution provides guidelines for the people to be heard, their needs addressed, and the power balance reset, through implementation of Article V of the US Constitution.
Today it requires 34 states to ratify the specific issues by the calling of a Convention. The Convention is represented by the people of each state, not legislators, and must remain focused on the same specific issues ratified by the states. As of June 2023, 19 States have voted affirmatively for the Convention of States to be called.
The topics approved include:
- Term Limits for Congress and Elected Officials
- Fiscal Restraints, including maintaining and living by a balanced budget
- Limit the power and scope of the federal government
We were most pleased to have our own, Bill Harenburg, Regional Captain for COS, present the Convention of States Project. Bill is a resident of SCA and very active in many of our clubs. Before retiring Bill was a director of data management and computer integrity for many national banks and large corporations. Bill has been most instrumental in growing grass-roots support and recognition for The Convention of States in Southern Nevada.
