DEBT COMMITTEE CHAIRS SPEAK FIRST IN CHEYENNE AT WYOMING FORUM
CHEYENNE, Wyo. - The two men charged by the President to find solutions to the nation's growing debt crisis will discuss their findings for the first time outside Washington D.C. in Cheyenne at the2010 Wyoming Forum on Dec. 7 and 8.
Erskine Bowles and former U.S. Sen. Al Simpson, co-chairs of the Bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, will keynote the 2010 Wyoming Forum entitled "National Debt: The Consequences of No Action." The Commission's report is due for release in Washington on or before Dec. 1.
Simpson represented Wyoming in the U.S. Senate for 18 years and has recently electrified the discussion surrounding the national debt with his signature colorful remarks. Bowles is President of the University of North Carolina, was Chief of Staff to President Clinton and is a national leader in business and finance.
For the first time in its 28-year history, the annual Wyoming Forum will be held in Cheyenne at the Little America Hotel and Resort on Dec. 7 and 8. Known as Wyoming's premier event for analysis and discussion of the current economic and business climate, the Wyoming Business Alliance/Wyoming Heritage Foundation event has been held in Casper for many years.
"The caliber of speakers at the Forum this year is unprecedented," said Bill Schilling, President of the Wyoming Business Alliance. "The timeliness of the discussion and the urgency with which we must address this growing crisis makes the forum a can't-miss event for business leaders, elected officials, employers and employees.
"What can, and must, be done about the national debt is more than a trillion dollar question," Schilling added. "We invite citizens from around the region to not sit on the sidelines - come hear what these people have to say about the future of our country."
In addition to Simpson and Bowles, featured speakers at the 2010 Wyoming Forum will include:
The cost to participate is $160 in advance or $200 at the door. Attendees will enjoy breakfast on Dec. 8 and lunch on both Dec. 7 and Dec. 8. A full report on the conference will be sent to participants.
