Here we need subjunctive form right?
and with subjunctive we have a "that" or "to" in the construction.
we do not use will, should.

so A should be correct?

I have marked A as the correct answer, even though the source of this question is unknown.

Most state constitutions now mandate that the state budget be balanced each year.

(A) mandate that the state budget be balanced
(B) mandate the state budget to 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

People who are aware of use of Subjunctive and still made an error in not to select "A" are overlooking the use of Subjunctive in Passive forms.

ex- "ake recommended that Susan be hired immediately."
