Koppelman appears on national show

Representative Kim Koppelman discusses the Constitution, as other panelists look on, during a recent nationally broadcast television program.

Rep. Kim Koppelman of West Fargo made a national television appearance last week.

Speaking about the Constitution and the authority the Founding Fathers gave states, Koppelman joined two others on a panel during the program, which was taped in Dallas, Texas, before a studio audience, and aired last Friday.

Moderated by historian David Barton, the panel discussed Constitutional topics including Article V and the Electoral College.

“The Founding Fathers understood that the federal government should be limited, and they also gave us a tool, as states, to reign in that federal government when it gets too overblown, too heavy handed, too large, and too intrusive,” Koppelman told viewers, nation-wide.

Also appearing on the panel were author Tara Ross and Senator Kevin Lundberg of Colorado.

A broadcast of the Glenn Beck Program on The Blaze network, it was carried on the Dish network, on several cable systems throughout the nation, and on the internet.

The Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Koppelman previously chaired the Constitutional Revision Committee and the Administrative Rules Committee. He has authored numerous pieces of landmark legislation, including Constitutional Amendments and has become a national leader on various Constitutional and federalism issues.

He is also the past national Chairman of the Council of State Governments (CSG). He has represented West Fargo’s District 13 in the North Dakota House of Representatives since 1994.
