Congressman Stivers (OH) says he supports balanced-budget amendment

U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Columbus) told the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce at an Oct. 18 luncheon that the recent government shutdown has convinced him a balanced-budget amendment is necessary.

 

Republicans and Democrats reached an agreement to end the shutdown, which began Oct. 1, in order to raise the debt ceiling.

"It was certainly an interesting time," said Stivers, whose 15th Congressional District office is in Hilliard.

 

Even after all the drama of the past two weeks, it could all play out early next year when the same issues -- a spending bill and the debt ceiling -- are at hand once again, Stivers said.

\

The solution, Stivers said, is an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would require the federal government, like 49 of the 50 U.S. states, to have a balanced budget.

 

"But Washington isn't ready for a balanced budget amendment," Stivers said. "It will have to be pushed on Washington by the states."

 

Constitutional amendments can be proposed by Congress or proposed at a constitutional convention by two-thirds of the state legislatures. An amendment must be ratified by three-fourths of the states -- 38.

 

"What is at stake is our kids' future, (and) I think it's time for something radical like a balanced budget amendment," Stivers said. "It would bring fiscal sanity to our country. A balanced budget is the way to do it."
