When it comes to the federal budget, children are clearly not a high priority. Despite higher rates of poverty and more economic potential than older generations, children receive a smaller share of federal dollars and are burdened with a large share of the national debt.
Over the past year, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget’s Budgeting for the Next Generation project has investigated how children fare in the federal budget, demonstrated that the process itself is biased against spending on children, and presented a number of potential options to improve this treatment.
Please join the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and a panel of experts for a conversation on federal policy and budgeting for children.
Panelists will include:
Romina Boccia, Director of the Grover M. Herman Center for the Federal Budget, Heritage Foundation
Marc Goldwein, Senior Vice President and Policy Director, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget
Heather Hahn, Senior Fellow, Urban Institute and co-author of the annual Kids' Share report
Bruce Lesley, President, First Focus
We invite you to join us for lunch, listen to this distinguished panel, and ask questions to the panelists during our Q&A session.
