Balanced budget amendment
is opposed by AJCommittee

At a hearing of the Michigan
House Committee on Constitu-
tional Revision and Women's
Rights last week at Wayne State
University, American Jewish
Congress Regional Director Ruth
S. Rosenbaum testified in opposi-
tion to Senate Joint Resolution E,
which calls for a constitutional
amendment to require a balanced
budget.
"The political energy, time and
financial resources being devoted
to amending the Constitution
could be invested more profitably
in challenging the revenue and
spending programs proposed by
the President and Congress," the
AJCongress stated.
The calling of a Constitutional
convention is an untried method
of amending the Constitution and
with no precedents to guide its
use, there are no clear rules to de-
termine the selection of delegates,
whether it could be limited
strictly to the one issue desig-
nated or manipulated to address a
vast range of other economic is-
sues such as military spending,
welfare and health benefits, fund-
ing for abortion as well as rewrit-
ing of the Establishment Clause
of the First Amendment.
"To the extent that there is a
fiscal crisis, it should be met
through the political process and

not by these Constitutional
methods which entail far too
many risks and far too much cost."
According to the AJCongress, a
balanced budget would require
severe cuts in all areas of govern-
ment spending, including de-
fense, foreign aid and aid to Israel,
as well as social programs and
public employment. Authorities
believe it would endanger social
security and force cuts in local
public services such as police, and
fire protection, sanitation, educa-
tion, as well as federal social sery- d
This could contribute to a
prolonged recession.

"It is poor public policy to
enshrine one particular economic
philosophy to a basic document
such as the U.S. Constitution,"
according to the AJCongress
spokesperson.

It is expected that a new effort
will be launched in Congress
when it reconvenes this month to
pry a balanced budget amend-
ment out of the House Judiciary
Committee where the proposal
(H.J. Resolution 243) now lan-
guishes. A discharge petition to
bring the amendment to the
House for a vote is now being cir-
culated and the proposal could Ins
brought to the floor very quickly,
according to the AJCongress.
