Congressman Pete Visclosky welcomes the Concord Coalition to Indiana to run the budget exercise Principles & Priorities. Phil Smith, national political director of the coalition will lead a diverse group of consitutents through a variety of budgetary choices where they get to choose what to keep, what to cut, and what to reform.
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.
