What's it all about?
In order to amend the Constitution, an
amendment must first be formally "proposed." After it is proposed, it
needs to be ratified or approved by three-fourths of the states.
There are two ways to propose an
1) The Congress, by two-thirds of the
vote of both the House and the Senate, may propose an amendment.
Delegates at a convention requested
by the state legislatures may propose amendments.
The Constitution has been amended
27 times. Each of these amendments was proposed by Congress.
Since a balanced budget amendment will
restrain Congress, Congress will not likely propose the
amendment. Therefore, the amendment needs to be proposed by an
Amendments Convention called by the state legislatures as provided
for in Article V of the Constitution.
