The Upper Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce hosts the Concord Coalition's premier budget exercise Principles and Priorities during the Republican National Convention. Phil Smith, Concord's southern regional director leads local residents in this congressional role-playing event. Former Comptroller General David Walker wraps up the event with his thoughts on national fiscal policy.
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.
