The August 26 event will include former Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), Heartland Institute President Joseph Bast, and other speakers

The Heartland Institute, a 31-year-old national nonprofit organization headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, will launch its new Center for Constitutional Reform at an evening event on Wednesday, August 26, at the Marriott City Center in Dallas, Texas.

Former U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), former U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-FL), and Heartland Institute President Joseph Bast will be among the evening’s speakers.

Explaining why a Center for Constitutional Reform is needed, Bast said, “America is facing a constitutional crisis. Limits on the size and power of the national government intended by the Founding Fathers and placed in the Constitution have been violated repeatedly and with devastating consequences. The national government has grown to the point that it is now a clear and present danger to American life, liberty, and happiness.”

Kyle Maichle, project manager for the new center, said, “State legislatures across the nation are considering constitutional reform measures as a solution to stop Washington, DC’s endless thirst for power. Article V conventions, nullification, and state compact agreements are solutions lawmakers can introduce to rein in the federal government.”

The Heartland Institute’s new Center for Constitutional Reform was created to highlight individuals and organizations working to find solutions to the nation’s constitutional problem. It will not endorse one particular path to constitutional reform, seeking instead to support and seek constructive debate on all efforts to restore constitutional order.

There is no charge for attending the launch event, but registration in advance is required. Jim Lakely at and 312/377-4000.
