Washington, D.C. – Today, the nation faces politically complicated fiscal challenges. In an effort to aid those who face these challenges, George Mason University, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and Deloitte will host “Looking Back to Move Forward: The 1990 Budget Summit Revisited.” The two panel event will be held on Wednesday, November 28 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Room 608 of the Dirksen Office Building.
The 1990 Budget Summit led to a bipartisan agreement crafted by Republicans and Democrats working together to tackle the nation’s fiscal crisis. Reflecting on that 1990 summit, the November 28 event will consist of two panels: one to review the significance of the Budget Summit and the other to discuss how political leaders today can use this knowledge to tackle the U.S.’s current fiscal challenge. The first panel includes budget experts former Senate Budget Committee Chairman and BPC Senior Fellow Pete Domenici, former Senator John Sununu, and former Representatives Tom Foley and David Obey. The second panel will feature journalists who cover the budget including: The New York Times’ Jackie Calmes and NPR’s Ron Elving, Columbia Law School’s Michael Graetz, and Phil Joyce of the University of Maryland.
The event is open to press, but seating is limited. Media should RSVP to email@example.com.
