Advocates Applaud House Concurrent Resolution Calling for an Article V Inflation-Fighting Fiscal Responsibility Amendment Proposing Convention

Let Us Vote for a BBA

The Let US Vote for a Balanced Budget Amendment Citizen’s Campaign, Inc., a coalition of nonpartisan advocates concerned about the impacts of inflation and out-of-control national debt applauded the introduction of House Concurrent Resolution 101 calling for an Article V Convention of States to propose Amendments to the United States Constitution and stipulating ratification by state conventions, effectively a vote of the people. The companion Archivist Article V Application Counting & Calling Act, HR 8419, is designed to ensure Congress complies with its ministerial mandate to call an Article V Convention “upon the application of two-thirds of the states.” It parallels the Archivist’s current responsibility to count state ratification resolutions and certify when an Amendment is added to the US Constitution. Lead sponsor Representative Jodey Arrington from Texas introduced the legislation with original co-sponsors Representative Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Representative Yvette Herrell of New Mexico to enforce Article V of the United States Constitution that states: ‘The Congress,...on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments…to the United States Constitution… “ The Concurrent Resolution introduced today states in part. “…beginning in 1979, when Congress appears to have failed in its constitutional duty to count applications and call a ‘Convention for proposing Amendments’, the Nation’s debt has increased to more than $30,000,000,000,000 (Trillion) from $830,000,000,000, (Billion) while the value of the dollar has declined by over 70 percent…” “On behalf of my granddaughters, I want to thank U.S. Representative Jodey Arrington for correcting Congress’ constitutional failure in 1979 to call the Amendment Proposing Convention of States. Ironically, 39 states, five more than needed, had filed Applications to Call the Convention to address high inflation amid rising debt. Most importantly, the Resolution would prohibit any proposed Amendments from being added to our Constitution without a majority vote by the people for yes-pledged delegates in three-quarters of the state conventions,” stated David Biddulph, Co-Founder of the Let Us Vote for a Balanced Budget Amendment Citizen’s Campaign, Inc. The resolution calls for Congress to set the time and place for an Article V convention for proposing fiscal constraints on the federal government unless the Archivist finds that Congressional Records do not support a finding that the thirty-four Applications required to call a Convention of States for Proposing Amendments was ever achieved. Dr. Barry Poulson, Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Colorado, stated, “Other countries have taken the lead in imposing fiscal constraints on their governments, and this resolution will allow U.S. citizens for the first time to incorporate fiscal constraints in our Constitution. The federal government is too big, too expensive, and too intrusive in our lives. It is time for citizens to decide how much government we want and are willing to pay for.” Hon. David M. Walker the Former Comptroller General of the United States, stated, “I commend Rep. Jodey Arrington, the lead sponsor, and all the cosponsors for their leadership in introducing legislative proposals designed to restore federal fiscal sanity and recognize the rights of the states under Article V of the Constitution. The time has come to end the dereliction of duty by Congress and defuse our ticking debt bomb.” Admiral William Owens, United States Navy (ret), former vice chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff stated, “Our country seriously needs a strong reminder of both states rights and the seriousness of acting fiscally in the best interests of our country and our national security. This convention for proposing amendments will not only be historic, but it will also be a monument to our founders and to our present-day legislators taking the right action on behalf of our people.” The Concurrent Resolution is a significant victory in the fiscal responsibility coalition’s “StopInflating.US” campaign to encouraging citizens concerned about higher prices, slow growth, and its impact on future generations to support a state-drafted, voter approved, inflation-fighting, fiscal responsibility amendment to the Constitution. ### Please visit: https://letusvoteforbba.org/.

"From our start, we’ve been focused on building credibility with our clients by investing in our people and technology and holding ourselves to the highest standards in data integrity,” said Verl Allen, CEO, of Claravine. “We know that our audience relies on trusted third-party reports to supplement their own research when considering technology investments. This is why we are committed to enlisting independent testing and auditors like SOC 2 to demonstrate how our Data Standards Cloud can be fully trusted.” In addition to achieving SOC 2 Type II compliance, Claravine is having a landmark year with milestones including an additional $16 million in Series B funding, hiring an influx of new engineers and being named a “Momentum Leader” and “High Performer” in the Spring 2022 G2 Rankings. Claravine is on track to meet its ambitious growth goal of doubling its revenue this year, accelerating product development, and investing in its integrations to automate data standards across digital experiences.

Telland Releases First of Its Kind Farmland NFTs on Telos Blockchain

Telos Foundation

The mint is currently underway on Telos EVM providing users with a unique opportunity to own collectable artistic NFTs representing access to yields from 100 square meters of physical land within the Proyecto Ecológico Nuestro Paraíso in the Northwestern region of Piura, Peru, South America. However, the use-case of Telland NFTs goes far beyond simple ownership. These land plots will contribute to the growth of local farmers' sustainable organic produce and a more robust economy in the region. Perpetual Rewards for Holders Users that mint one or more Telland NFTs will receive annual rewards in perpetuity, financially backed by the revenue generated from the South American farmland. Currently there are only 100 NFT parcels of land priced at $150 USD in TLOS tokens each available to mint. The rewards payment breakdown is as follows: Year 1 of ownership - Holder receives minimum guarantee of $30 (20% APR on NFT mint price) Year 2 of ownership - Holder receives a minimum guarantee of $50 (33% APR on NFT mint price) Year 3 of ownership - Holder receives a minimum guarantee of $75 (50% APR on NFT mint price). This minimum continues perpetually from year 3 onwards. The collection debuts at an ideal moment as accumulating land ownership is more challenging for millennials today than at any other time in our history. Furthermore, Telland NFTs offers holders a chance to generate passive revenue from a real-world asset that benefits the environment while omitting painstaking bureaucratic processes and paperwork. Telland is also a participant in the Telos Mission NFT contest, which offers NFT creators a chance to win substantial prize money and acclaim in the NFT community. The contest has over 60 submissions to date and Telland's participation provides yet another opportunity for value increase in the event Telland is announced a winner. Public voting begins on July 23, 2002, on the TaiKai Network. "We chose Telos primarily for two factors: the community and the technology. The vision of the founders of Telos was to create a community around the ideas of service to society and care for the environment. Telland wants to do just that by converting arid lands into farmlands that produce fruits with a high nutritional content that help the well-being of humanity. In terms of technology, the ease of creating and deploying smart contracts in the Telos EVM, the incredible speed and low cost of transactions was such that the decision to build on their network was simple." -Paul Gonzales, Telland Co-founder "Telland is an amazing example of real-world application of NFTs and a glimpse at the future of tokenised land and real estate. At $150 an NFT, these prove to be a very interesting way to gain exposure to the value of real estate. The idea of being able to buy and trade land rights with such ease is magical to anyone who has had the pleasure of making a traditional real estate purchase where the process is incredibly slow (taking 2-4 weeks) and requiring middle men and costly fees" -Justin Giudici, Telos Foundation CEO About Telos Live since 2018, Telos Blockchain (ticker: TLOS) is an ESG compliant Layer 1 smart contract platform that offers full-service compatibility with Solidity, Vyper and Native C++ smart contracts. The Telos EVM is the most powerful and scalable Ethereum Smart Contract platform built to power Web 3.0.
