Midwest Regional Director will give overview of the current debt-limit discussions, discuss the federal budget more broadly, and identify the greatest fiscal-challenges today and into the future. Then, participants will be able to discuss and negotiate their ideas for what policy options should be adopted to improve our 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.
