In Washington DC, after years of “fiscal cliff” brinkmanship and crisis management in passing federal budget bills, Congress and the President finally arrived at a two year federal budget deal. It’s not a “grand bargain” but does protect entitlement programs and repeals some of the worst sequester cuts.

Hear report from Congressman Nadler and ask questions.
We will also have update on NYS budget and legislative items including upcoming lobbying trips to Albany on various issues. Get involved and get on the bus!
