Rep. Bobby Scott invites you to a Town Hall in Norfolk

September 23, 2011

Dear Robert Bruce,

On Monday, September 26, 2011 at 7:00 p.m., I will be hosting a town hall meeting in downtown Norfolk on the budget deficit and job creation. Joining me to discuss these issues will be Michael Cassidy, CEO and President of The Commonwealth Institute for Fiscal Analysis, a nonprofit think tank based in Richmond that focuses on providing independent research and analysis on budget and tax issues.

As you may know, the Budget Control Act of 2011, enacted last month, cut the federal budget deficit by $1 trillion through spending caps but mandated an additional $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction through a new Joint Select Committee. We do not yet know what programs will be cut or if new revenue will be raised. The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction's recommendations will have to be voted on by both the House and the Senate by December 23, 2011. Additionally, the President has recently submitted his recommendations on how to further reduce the deficit and his proposal to get Americans back to work. The town hall meeting will give me an opportunity to discuss the budget deficit and job creation proposals with you and to hear your concerns.

The town hall will be held in Norfolk's City Council Chambers in City Hall located at 810 Union Street in downtown Norfolk. For more information about this event, please contact my Newport News District Office at (757) 380-1000.

I hope to see you on Monday!

Very truly yours,

Member of Congress
