U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (MO-08) today voted for a bipartisan amendment to require the federal government to balance the budget each and every fiscal year.

"One of the most important responsibilities of the Congress is to work hard for shared priorities on behalf of the people we represent," Emerson said. "Federal deficits and runaway spending ultimately do harm to the economy and to the legacy of freedom Americans want to pass on to the next generation. That is why the focus of this House of Representatives is on finding a sustainable path forward, preserving important functions of government and eliminating those that overreach, are inefficient, or have become unnecessary."

The measure obtained a majority of the votes cast in the U.S. House of Representatives, but failed to obtain the two-thirds majority required to send the measure to the states for ratification.
