to the official website of The Mount Vernon Assembly.
Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states equal standing with Congress to propose constitutional amendments. The framers of the Constitution included the state option to address issues of abuse or inaction by the federal government.
In light of the federal government’s struggle to effectively execute the will of the people combined with the imbalance of power that currently exists between the federal and state governments, we respectfully request your state’s participation in a bipartisan gathering of state legislators known as The Mount Vernon Assembly.
The Constitution gives the power of the state option under Article V to the state legislatures; therefore we maintain the integrity of the process by restricting participation to currently serving state legislators who represent the will of the people. No outside organizations are allowed to be involved in any way.
Date: June 12 & 13, 2014
Location: Indiana Statehouse
Details of the event are to follow.
