Rep. Smucker Supports Balanced Budget Amendment

 

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-16), in a speech this afternoon on the House floor, expressed his strong support for Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s (VA-06) balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

During his speech, Rep. Smucker said:

“Clearly the status quo here in Washington is failing the American people, and real change is needed. Our budget process is broken, and a balanced budget amendment is exactly the mechanism we need to force the decisions to get our fiscal house in order.”

Since taking office, Rep. Smucker has worked to advance reforms to the federal budget process. In April of 2017, Rep. Smucker sent a letter to House Budget Chairman Diane Black urging a hearing on comprehensive budget process reform. Additionally, Rep. Smucker cosponsored three bills to provide greater accountability in the federal budget process.

Following these efforts on the House Budget Committee, on January 30, 2018, Rep. Smucker introduced the Joint Commission on Budget Process Reform Act of 2018 – legislation that would establish a bipartisan, bicameral commission to:

·        Study procedures on the budget and federal expenditures

·        Conduct at least four public hearings to examine potential reforms

·        Seek recommendations from economists, experts, Members of Congress, federal agencies, educational institutions, state legislatures, and private organizations on ways to reform the budget process

·        Draft a bill to amend the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974

·        Submit a report to the House and Senate containing the bill it recommends and other matters deemed appropriate
