Harrison City Council voted unanimously to approve the Convention of States Resolution during the Oct. 5, 2021 Council meeting. The resolution urges state legislators to add Ohio to a list of states that have adopted resolutions to trigger an Article V Convention of States. Signed by Harrison Mayor Bill Neyer, the resolution will be sent to Ohio Representative Cindy Abrams and Ohio Senator Louis Blessing for consideration. It reads, in part

The Council of the City of Harrison hereby calls upon the Senate and House of Representatives of the Ohio State Legislature, especially Senator Louis W. Blessing III and Representative Cindy Abrams, the elected representatives of those constituents, to advance and adopt with all possible speed, the concurrent legislative resolutions adding Ohio to the roll of the many other states which have adopted resolutions to trigger an Article V Convention of States which are limited to Fiscal Responsibility, Term Limits, and Reining in the Scope, Power and Jurisdiction of the Federal Government, to draft, consider, debate and propose constitutional amendments which, once ratified, would restore the proper measure of authority and resources to the levels of government closest and most responsible to the people.

In order to convene a Convention of States, 39 states (two-thirds of states) must call for the Convention , which can then propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution without interference from the U.S. Congress. Proposed amendments would then be sent to the states for ratification. The Constitution has never been amended in this way.
