HB 7388 does away with the founder’s Constitutional protection of the Electoral College in the selection of the President by circumventing the Constitution. When a state joins the National Popular Vote Agreement (NPV), it does not matter who the people in the state vote for, their state’s electors will be forced to vote for the presidential candidate who has been ”designated” as the national popular vote winner. Essentially, it is a vote stealing scheme. See article below. The winner does not have to have a majority but just a simple “‘plurality,” which could be as low as 15-30%. This will make small population states like Rhode Island, meaningless ZEROs in Presidential Elections.

We are in great danger of HB 7388 passing in Rhode Island.  Currently, a majority of the Senate and a majority of the House have agreed to be listed as sponsors on this legislation. It is important to make your voice heard before this dangerous bill becomes law.
