Congressman Peter Welch says he’s hitting the road to find out what Vermonters think should be in – and out – of the federal budget.
The Democratic lawmaker is launching a "budget priorities tour" today in Winooski. He says it’ll be the first in a series of roundtable discussions with business, education and community leaders on work force development and job training programs that stand to be affected by budget-crunching in Washington.
The group for this morning’s session at Physician’s Computer Co., in Winooski includes officials from the Rutland Tech Center, Vermont State Colleges, Vermont Country Products and Dynapower Corp. It starts at 10:30.
