Sen. Standridge comments on Senate’s passage of SJR 4

Sen. Rob Standridge is the Senate author of Senate Joint Resolution 4, which is an application to Congress calling for a convention of the states to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office of its officials and for members of Congress. The Senate approved the measure Wednesday 26-20 and it will now go to the House for further consideration.

“Our Founding Fathers feared that someday the federal government might become oppressive and so they provided us with this constitutional opportunity to remind the federal government that it is the child of the states, not vice versa. We must reassert our place as the parent of our country. We are the United States of America not the united state. I want to thank my Senate colleagues for their support of this crucial legislation.” – Sen. Rob Standridge, R-Norman
