21. Most state constitutions now mandate that the state budget be balanced each year.
(A) mandate the state budget be balanced
(B) mandate that the state budget be balanced
(C) mandate that the state budget will be balanced
(D) have a mandate for a balanced state budget
(E) have a mandate to balance the state budget

Mandate is a verb in the original question stem. Therefore have a mandate (noun) is wrong. There is no need for that because it is not a restrictive clause. Therefore A.

In addition, this is in subjunctive mood.

'that' is needed. the sentence is correct, no change needed.
Hence, B. (seems like B should have been A, typo perhaps?)
