Rep. Kristi Noem today released the following statement after Democrats blocked the passage of a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

“America’s economy is booming again because of the work we’ve done to cut taxes and repeal costly regulations. That growth is critical, but out-of-control spending is an anchor on continued prosperity. While I’ve fought to reverse the Democrats’ spending binge, more must be done to hold big-spenders accountable long into the future. I will continue to fight to add a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution, taking South Dakota’s example and forcing some commonsense fiscal discipline on Washington, D.C.”

As a member of the South Dakota state legislature, Noem helped balance the state’s budget every year she served. Noem has consistently supported legislation to add a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution while serving in the U.S. House.
