(Washington, D.C.) -- The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) today reiterated its support for the bipartisan Tax Limitation Amendment (TLA), sponsored by Representative Joe Barton (R-Texas).  The TLA would require that Congress have a two-thirds super-majority to increase taxes.  If passed, the measure would then need ratification by 38 states in order to become the 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
