Excerpt

With a potential shut down of the federal government less than a week away, Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Deerfield) had a chance to educate more than 140 of his constituents about the budget process today at Sedgebrook’s senior community in Lincolnshire. A group including 12 students from Stevenson High School, residents from Sedgebrook along with others from throughout the 10th Congressional District went through an exercise sponsored by the Concord Coalition designed to show them the hard choices necessary to craft a budget.
