Balanced budget advocates seek Article V Constitutional Convention

by Mark Brown

Fritz Pettyjohn from The Balanced Budget Amendment Task Force spoke with Greg Belfrage on how to use Article V of the Constitution, which allows Congress to call for a convention if petitioned by two-thirds of the states, or 34 states. 

Currently there are 20 states signed up with Ohio being the latest.  Pettyjohn said that they don't expect to have 34 states yet in 2014 because some states don't meet for legislation until January.
