  1. Senator Tom Coburn will be joing Michel Farris , founder of Convention of States Movement in this testimony. Texas has legislation ready to go but the legislation is not exactly in the format and form that COS wants to make all the states applying consistent but at least it is a move forward. We can see clearly that even with control of both Houses of Congress, the Republicans for the most part are too frightened to take on the President and their Democrat comrades. This is appalling. It should put to rest once and for the argument against COS that “if we get control” we can fix things.
