The Constitution To the Rescue

Lambro, Donald
August 1982
National Review;8/20/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 16, p1009
The article focuses on the idea of a spending-limitation amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In December 1972, attorney Lewis Uhler and then-Governor Ronald Reagan initiated this idea of a spending-limitation amendment to the California constitution. But at that time Proposition One spending-limitation amendment to the state's constitution was voted down in a statewide referendum. In 1975, Uhler created the National Tax-Limitation Committee for lobby this idea at the state and federal levels. With the election of Reagan as the U.S. President, a balanced-budget amendment was voted out by the Judiciary Committee.
