National debt forum tomorrow night
Here’s one last reminder:
UW-Green Bay is hosting a series of public, web-based discussion sessions focusing on the impact of the national debt and fiscal policy. It’s part of a statewide effort organized by The Concord Coalition and the Wisconsin Fiscal Advisory Council with sessions in each of Wisconsin’s eight congressional districts.
The first forum, on Tuesday Sept. 28, will begin at 6 p.m. in Mary Ann Cofrin Hall 137. The focus will be on the national debt and feature presentations by Alice Rivlin, budget director under President Clinton; Brian Riedl, Grover Herman Fellow in Federal Budgetary Affairs at the Heritage Foundation; and Robert Bixby, president of The Concord Coalition. The conference will be webcast from Washington, D.C. During each forum, a moderator will invite audience members to ask questions of the presenters, which will be coordinated by the facilitator via the internet for a live response from the experts to the audiences at each campus.
Advance registration is requested. For a preview of the forum, check out this story by Wisconsin Public Radio reporter Patty Murray: click here.
