LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan is now the 23rd state to call for a constitutional convention for a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The state Senate on Wednesday passed a resolution to petition Congress for a convention of the states, following action earlier by the House. Eleven more states need to do so in order for the action to be taken on a national level. Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer dismissed the move as election year politics.
