Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) will be holding a series of town hall meetings across South Dakota to discuss the recently passed tax relief package, the upcoming debt ceiling negotiations and the need to cut spending in Washington.
Thune will be in the Tunheim Classroom Building room 203 at Dakota State University on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. He will continue with stops in Brookings at 1 p.m. and Watertown at 4 p.m.
"It is important for me to let South Dakotans know the path ahead when it comes to addressing our nation's financial stability," said Thune. "While the tax relief package signed into law is not perfect, the consequences of inaction would have been severe as tax rates were scheduled to go up on every South Dakotan. Our economy continues to be hampered by soaring debt and deficits, and without addressing the out-of-control spending in Washington, the struggles will continue.
``We have a lot of work to do and I want to hear from South Dakotans as Congress prepares to address our nation's debt limit and overall federal spending in the weeks ahead," he said.
Thune has several other stops scheduled this week and next week in Yankton, Mitchell, Aberdeen, Rapid City, North Sioux City and Sioux Falls.
