Midwest Regional Director conducted the "Principles & Priorities" interactive budget exercise with Congressman Tim Walz constituents and other members of the public in Rochester and Winona, MN. Participants were able to weigh in with their ideas for improving the nation's long-term fiscal outlook.
Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country. In it, participants make decisions about the best combination of program spending and tax policies to match with their larger sense of what the principles behind our budgets should be and what priorities the government should place at the forefront of fiscal decision-making.
