U.S. Representative Mel Watt of North Carolina invites constituents from the greater Greensboro area to participate in the Concord Coalition's federal budget educational exercise. Phil Smith, Concord's southern regional director, administers the exercise at Bennett College while Congressman Watt interacts with citizens to discover how they would address fiscal challenges.
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.
