Federal Budget 101 Workshop

Oldsmar, Florida -- The Upper Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the City of Oldsmar and the Concord Coalition, are hosting a highly interactive, award winning federal budget planning exercise at the Courtyard by Marriott on Wednesday, Aug. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon.

This planning exercise was developed by the Concord Coalition by former Congressmen to provide taxpayers an opportunity to experience the complexities of budget development.  Congressman Gus Bilirakis has conducted several workshops using this exercise.

This realistic exercise provides participants a hands-on opportunity to get engaged in the budget building process.  Participants will review current spending priorities, work to recommend a package of policies aimed at getting our budget on a sound fiscal path, suggest priorities for the future and recommend spending priorities to keep America on a sound budgetary path.  Results will be provided to Congressman Bilirakis’ office for review.

This event is free and open to the public.  Seating is limited so reservations are required.  You can register for the event by calling the chamber at 813 855-4233.  Reservations can also be made using the chambers calendar of events.  

The Courtyard by Marriot is located at 4014 Tampa Road in Oldsmar.

The Concord Coalition is a nationwide, non-partisan, grassroots organization advocating generationally responsible fiscal policy.  They are dedicated to educating the public about the causes and consequences of federal budget deficits, the long-term challenges facing America's unsustainable entitlement programs, and how to build a sound economy for future generations.  For more information about the Concord Coalition visit www.concordcoalition.org.
