PURCELLVILLE, Va., Dec. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mark Levin will address why Article V is the way to reclaim self-governance in America at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) meeting in Washington, D.C. on December 4, 2014. Sponsored by the Convention of States (COS) Project, Levin -- a Constitutional expert and nationally syndicated talk show host -- will speak at a special breakfast keynote plenary session,
"No one understands the necessity and efficacy of Article V more than Mark Levin," said Mark Meckler, President of Citizens for Self-Governance and co-founder of the Convention of States Project. In fact, Levin is an endorser of COS's Jefferson Statement, explaining why the Convention of States project is so necessary at this time, and sits on COS's Legal Board of Reference. "We appreciate Mark's support and his powerful voice in the media, and look forward to hearing what he has to say about how ordinary citizens can reclaim our nation from our overreaching, inept federal government."
Immediately following Levin's speech, the COS Project will host a Convention of States workshop with panelists including: Professor Rob Natelson, Professor Randy E. Barnett, Michael Farris and Mark Meckler. The breakfast plenary session will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. EST.; the Convention of States Project Policy Workshop is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. EST. Properly credentialed media are welcomed to cover these events.
COS encourages citizens to call a Convention of States to return the country to its original vision of a limited federal government that is of, by and for the people. COS has enabled three Article V applications to pass (in Alaska, Florida and Georgia) and has organized leadership in 43 states around the country.

ALEC aims to provide a constructive, non-partisan forum for state legislators and private sector leaders to discuss public policy issues which focus on free markets, limited government and constitutional division of powers between the federal and state governments. The organization includes more than 2,000 Republican and Democratic state legislators.
