Concord Coalition Policy Director Joshua Gordon recently spoke about federal budget challenges to the Michigan Farm Bureau’s Academy for Political Leadership.
“My advice for state and local leaders is to keep the federal budget perspective in mind when they are figuring out how to make their choices," Gordon said. "A lot of what state and local governments do is really related to federal budgetary challenges. They have the same health care challenges, they have the same challenges with an aging population, and those are things that are going to affect the federal budget as well as state and local budgets.”
Academy participants also worked through "Principles & Priorities," Concord's federal budget exercise.
