Cardin To Host Town Hall With Federal Workers At NIH

U.S. Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.) will kick off a series of meetings with federal workers Friday.

With the threat of potential cuts to federal programs looming, Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.) is set to host a town hall meeting with federal workers at Bethesda's National Institutes of Health Friday.

The town hall will kick off a series of sessions hosted by Cardin at federal facilities to discuss the impacts sequestration on federal employees.

A statement from Cardin's office reads:

Senator Cardin works every day to ensure that the federal government is attentive to the issues of unique concern to the people who live and work in Maryland. This includes looking out for federal employees who have been contributed to our debt relief with a multi-year pay freeze; protecting resources for federal agencies headquartered in our state that could see serious cuts due to sequestration; helping small businesses navigate contracting and credit issues; protecting our environmental and cultural treasures; and much more.  Senator Cardin believes that federal workers should not solely bear the brunt of America’s economic burden.   

The meeting is set for 11 a.m. Friday at NIH.
