House Republicans haven’t given up on their attempt for a constitutional amendment to balance the budget. And the GOP freshman class may be a lot of help in that regard, The Hill reports.

"We're very optimistic that we'll be able to get a vote on this at some point," Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who has introduced two balanced-budget amendment bills, tells the news service.

Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, one of the co-sponsors of Goodlatte's bill. "When I was sent here, it was with a mandate for a balanced budget. So I think it's time we act on that."
