Subject: Please vote "NO" on HJR-8 Joint Resolution Proposing a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U. S. Constitution
Date: Sat Mar 08 07:18:31 MST 2014
Dear Representative Sanpei,
As a Utah citizen, I would like to express my opposition to HJR-8 in that the U. S. Constitution does not specify how or where conventions will be held, the number of delegates to be allotted to each state, what issues may be raised in convention or how the delegates will be elected. Although I support balancing the U. S. budget, I don't believe it needs to be achieved through the amendment process since the process itself is not restricted to one issue and too many specifics, as outlined above among others, are yet to be determined.
