Senate Roll Call 505 on
2013 Senate Joint Resolution V: Call for “Article V” U.S. balanced budget amendment convention

Passed 26 to 12 in the Senate on November 7, 2013 To submit an application to Congress calling for a "convention to propose amendments to the U.S. Consitution," limited to proposing an amendment that prohibits the federal government from spending more in any fiscal year than it collects in tax and other revenue (balanced budget amendment). Legislatures representing two-thirds of the states must request this to get a convention, and three-quarters of the states must approve any amendment proposed by an “Article V” convention for it to become part of the constitution. The resolution names 17 states that have submitted applications.
