As the 2018 legislative session gets nearer, the Idaho Convention of States team is reaching out to garner support from legislators throughout the state. On Wednesday, several COS supporters met with Senator Marv Hagedorn to discuss the COS resolution and how to move it forward.

Sen. Hagedorn expressed his support for the resolution and answered questions about the legislative process in Idaho. He emphasized the need to begin contacting state legislators now before the legislative session begins and the representatives are overwhelmed with work.

Above all else, he explained that calls and face-to-face contact with representatives are the most effective ways to raise awareness and gain support for the Convention of States. This is a testament to the true power of the grassroots. A simple 5-minute call once a month to your district representative significantly increases the chances of the resolution passing.
Dr. Tom Coburn visited Hawaii this past week and it was a great visit, the first-ever from a Convention of States headliner!

The Hawaii team gained some unexpected supporters and made unprecedented outreach through broader media exposure. #conventionofstates

"I absolutely support the Convention of States Project, designed for fulfilling the constitutional methodologies for protecting our rights. Yes, it can happen. And yes, it should happen. We should begin by completely restructuring the unconstitutional federal bureaucracy. Administrative agencies should not be making law. If you believe the people should decide instead of Washington D.C., then you should support the Convention of States Project." Thank you, Ben Shapiro! #conventionofstates

Last Friday Night, Mark Meckler, the President of Citizens for Self-Governance and the Convention of States Project, hosted Sirius Radio’s Patriot Tonight.  Tons of calls poured in from the grassroots on the three hour radio show from 9pm until midnight.  Not only was the show a great success for the promotion of the organization, but COS also got invited back on the show for a future date. 
In addition to his hit on Sirius Radio, last Saturday morning, Mark Meckler also appeared on Fox and Friends for the second time this month.  He was on with host, and COS supporter, Pete Hegseth.  Mark stated, “Pete is a great guy who just publicly endorsed COS.  Hopefully, we’ll have the chance to talk more about COS on Fox & Friends soon.”
