NFIB Victories in Michigan!

is the 23rd State to Pass an Article V Balanced Budget Resolution

The National Federation of Independent Business was successful in
backing action by Michigan to pass a resolution that will force Congress
to call a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution of the United
States to require a balanced federal budget. The resolutions are part of a
nationwide effort to use the Article V process outlined in the U.S.
Constitution to move Congress toward adopting a Balanced Budget Amendment. The
process requires 34 state legislatures to adopt similar resolutions that would
call for a convention to propose a balanced budget amendment.  In March of
2014, Michigan became the twenty third state to pass a call for a convention of
states to require a federal balanced budget. NFIB was the only business group
that supported this effort.

Update: In March of 2016, West Virginia became the 28th state to pass an Article V Balanced Budget Resolution! Only six more states to go!
