Ryan Announces Upcoming Listening Sessions
WASHINGTON -- First District Congressman Paul Ryan announced the schedule for listening sessions to be held on April 20 and 21. Ryan will be visiting communities in Wisconsin's First Congressional District that were not part of the round of listening sessions held earlier this year. These meetings provide an opportunity for First District residents to share their ideas and concerns and ask questions they have about federal government issues.
Among other issues, Ryan will discuss his line-item veto legislation to reduce pork-barrel spending and legislation to streamline gasoline blends to help lower and stabilize gas prices. Reforms to lower the cost of health care and put power and information in patients’ hands will be another topic of discussion.
“I hear from First District residents who are very concerned about high health care costs, gas prices, and overspending in Washington,” Ryan said. “I want to discuss these problems and other issues of concern to people, and talk about potential solutions. Earlier this year, many participated in our first round of listening sessions, and these upcoming meetings offer another chance for people to share their views and ask questions.”
