BETHALTO — Riverbend 9-12 announces a presentation at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, about the Illinois Convention of States Project.
Legislative Liaison Vickie Deppe and Despina Batson will present the program.
In the Constitution, the states gave the federal government specific enumerated powers. The program will focus on how the federal government has usurped most of the state’s powers and exceeded its constitutional authority.
The Convention of States Project is a non-partisan, grassroots movement to rein in the federal government and restore the states’ constitutional rights.
The meeting is at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, at the Bethalto Senior Citizens Center, 100 East Central St. (across from the police and fire departments)
