Udall to support balanced federal budget

Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., will cosponsor a constitutional amendment requiring Congress to balance the federal budget each year.

Udall is to join Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., in introducing the Balanced Budget Amendment. That would make Udall the first Democratic senator in many years to join Republican senators in cosponsoring balanced budget amendment legislation, Udall’s office said.
