Article V Planning Committee is named and held its first meeting June 27th, 2017.

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Members of the planning committee for the Arizona Balanced Budget Amendment Planning Convention have elected Representative Kelly Townsend (R-16) as chairman and Senator Nancy Barto (R-15) as vice-chairman.

The committee is tasked with coordinating the logistics of the planning convention scheduled to commence on September 12 at the Arizona State Capitol.
“It’s an honor to be chosen by my colleagues to chair the planning committee for the Arizona Balanced Budget Amendment Planning Convention,” said Representative Townsend. “Not only will this historic convention lay the groundwork for a desperately needed Balanced Budget Amendment at the federal level, but it will also provide Arizona the opportunity to shine nationally. I couldn’t be more excited to start our work.”

“Citizens are demanding their representatives address the issue of how to reduce the federal debt,” said Senator Barto. “I am pleased to serve alongside my colleagues in the House and Senate to welcome state delegates to Arizona for the Planning Convention. Heading into the celebration of our Nation’s Independence and the creation of our Republic seems like good timing on the part of the Committee to take the next steps.”
