Where Effort Stands Today?
To date, 28 states have passed resolutions calling for a federal balanced budget amendment. Just 6 more states are needed to trigger change.
Recent passage in Wisconsin, Arizona, Oklahoma, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Ohio, Louisiana, Tennessee, Florida, Michigan, West Virginia & Wyoming has brought the total to 28 states that have passed a Balanced Budget Article 5 resolution: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Only 6 more states legislatures are needed to pass resolutions calling for the first Article V convention in US history. Momentum is building in states as current Ohio Governor and former U.S. Congressman and House Budget Chairman John Kasich travels the country to bring national attention to the issue.
