BALANCED FEDERAL BUDGET. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Mandates that California Legislature adopt a specified resolution urging Congress to submit to the several states for ratification a United States Constitution amendment to require a balanced federal budget, with certain exceptions, or, in the alternative, to call a constitutional convention for sole purpose of proposing this amendment. If Legislature does not adopt this resolution within time specified, suspends payment of legislators' compensation, benefit, and expenses until adopted. Further provides that if Legislature fails to timely adopt the resolution, the resolution shall be transmitted to Congress by Secretary of State. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Adoption of this measure, by itself, would not have any direct fiscal impact on state or local governments.
