Event Description

“Principles and Priorities”, a federal budget exercise, challenges citizens to play the role of lawmaker for a day, reviewing and voting on a wide range of budget proposals involving entitlement programs, defense, health care, discretionary spending and taxes. Working in small groups, participants will debate and often agonize over everything from changes to Social Security to how many nuclear submarines the Navy needs. Some proposals would increase deficits and others would reduce them. In the end, these “congressional committees” will present their budget recommendations to Congressman Walter Jones, (R) NC 03, who will attend the event and listen to the discussions of the committees. Pre-registration is required at this web address: http://bit.ly/2DxxbTV
