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.

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."
