FRANKFORT — U.S. Senator Rand Paul will appear before a state government legislative committee in late February to lend support to a resolution that would ask the federal government to balance its budget.
According to a release from Senate President David Williams, Paul will testify in support of a bill Williams intends to sponsor encouraging Congress to balance its books. The resolution would encourage calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would require a balanced federal budget.
Paul, a Bowling Green eye surgeon, has said he intends to release his own federal budget soon that includes billions of dollars in cuts.
Williams, a Burkesville lawyer, is seeking the Republican nomination for governor.
The Republican freshman senator will appear before the senate State and Local Government Committee on Feb. 22. Paul is expected to address the full senate in the afternoon.
