This past August, Congress and President Obama reached a compromise, called the Budget Control Act, which created the Joint Deficit Reduction Committee. Join us this Saturday as we delve into what exactly it is, and what the implications are for international affairs funding.
The Super Committee has been mandated to cut one trillion dollars from the federal budget over the next 10 years - HALF coming from national security spending, which includes the international affairs budget.
Join us this Saturday on the call as we discuss the ins and out of the Super Committee and what it means for international affairs funding with Meghan Simonds, Deputy Director of Government Affairs at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition.
