RESOLUTION

ASSOCIATION OF JUSTICES OF THE SUPREME COURT OF
THE STATE OF NEW YORK

WHEREAS, the Association of Justices of the Supreme Court has studied
the Pros and Cons concerning the 2017 Call for a Constitutional Convention; and

WHEREAS, it appears that the cost of convening a 2019 Constitutional
Convention may well exceed a minimum of $160 million; and
WHEREAS, any specific, focused and necessary constitutional changes can
be achieved without the expense, risks and uncertainties of a wholesale
Constitutional Convention; and

WHEREAS, more than 200 necessary constitutional amendments have been
approved through constitutional questions posed to voters without the expense,
risks and uncertainties associated with a Constitutional Convention; and

WHEREAS, after giving the issue a thorough review, the Association of
Justices of the Supreme Court of the State of New York believes a Constitutional
Convention is unnecessary, cost prohibitive, and unlikely to be approved, and may
result in the reversion, elimination or diminution of many current constitutional
rights and safeguards;

NOW, THEREFORE, based on all the reasons stated above, the Association
of Justices of the Supreme Court of the State of New York hereby urges the voters
of the State of New York to

Turn Your Ballot OVER to VOTE “NO” on the
Question:
“Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend
the same?”

The answer is “NO.”
