Source: Joint Resolution for Amendment to the Constitution
Constitutional Amendment to prohibit outlays for a fiscal year (except those for repayment of debt principal) from exceeding total receipts for that fiscal year (except those derived from borrowing) unless Congress, by a three-fifths rollcall vote of each chamber, authorizes a specific excess of outlays over receipts.
  • Requires a three-fifths rollcall vote of each chamber to increase the public debt limit.
  • Directs the President to submit a balanced budget to Congress annually.
  • Prohibits any bill to increase revenue from becoming law unless approved by a majority of each chamber by rollcall vote.
  • Authorizes waivers of these provisions when a declaration of war is in effect or under other specified circumstances involving military conflict.
  • Amendment to the Constitution shall be valid when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification


  • Topic: Budget & Economy
  • Headline: Balanced Budget Amendment with 3/5 vote to override
  • Headline 2: Sponsored Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment
