NEW YORK — Kicking off the fall fiscal discussion, The Peter G. Peterson Foundation and POLITICO are teaming up again to present the Morning Money Breakfast Briefing, hosted by POLITICO’s Chief Economic Correspondent, Ben White. Congressman Steny Hoyer, the House Democratic Whip and a key leader on fiscal issues, will share his perspective on the range of challenges facing Congress this fall. The breakfast takes place on Tuesday, September 17 at 8:00am, at The Mayflower in Washington.
With the Congressional Budget Office scheduled to release its annual long-term budget outlook on Tuesday, the Breakfast Briefing will provide a preview of the fiscal policies that will take center stage this fall. The conversation will feature in-depth discussion on our most pressing fiscal challenges, including debt-ceiling negotiations, the FY2014 Appropriations process, the sequester and tax reform. Earlier this year, The Peter G. Peterson Foundation and POLITICO joined together for the inaugural Morning Money Breakfast Briefing featuring Senator Rob Portman (R-OH).
