The Compact for a Balanced Budget is only 36 state enactments, one 24 hour-long convention, and 1 congressional resolution away from the proposal and ratification of a powerful Balanced Budget Amendment. Other Article V efforts, including the 40 year old BBA task force effort and the more recent Convention of the States effort, while worthy of your consideration, are at least 70 state enactments, one indefinitely long convention, and 2 congressional resolutions away from any amendment being ratified.
