MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Wisconsin legislative committee has endorsed the first step toward a U.S. constitutional amendment demanding a balanced federal budget.

The Assembly Elections Committee voted 6-2 Tuesday in favor of asking Congress to call a convention of states to bring a budget amendment forward.

Most Republican state lawmakers are getting behind a national tea party push to convene a convention to officially propose the amendment.

It would take two-thirds of the states to call the gathering, and three-fourths of the states would have to ratify an amendment before it can be part of the U.S. Constitution.

Wisconsin's request now goes to the state Assembly.
