State Rep. Dan Eubanks (R-Walls) Monday was honored at the State Capitol for his support of the Convention of States. 

Eubanks, in his second term in the Legislature, was credited as the primary author of the resolution that saw Mississippi join the Convention of States in 2018 and 2019. 

The Convention of States Project is a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

“There is an assault on the Constitution, our freedoms, and our liberties,” Eubanks said. “We have gotten away from the republican form of government our Founders implemented. This is our way back.”

Thirty-four states are needed to call a convention and then 38 states have to ratify any amendment that comes out of the convention.  

The Convention of States (COS) Project began in 2013. All adjoining states surrounding Mississippi have also passed COS resolutions.  

“Thank you for this award,” Eubanks said. “It has been my great pleasure to help DeSoto County and Mississippi join what could be the most important fight in our nation’s history.”
