Baldwin To Talk To Seniors
U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin will join a roundtable discussion with La Crosse County Aging Unit staff and seniors this afternoon at 2:00 p.m.
Baldwin will use the visit to highlight her work to reauthorize the Older Americans Act, which was recently introduced in the Senate. She will also hear seniors' concerns regarding nutrition programs and funding cuts resulting from sequestration.
On June 19th, at a Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing, Senator Baldwin highlighted the impact of sequestration on Wisconsin seniors and shared with the committee the stories of seniors from the La Crosse Aging Unit who sent her 40 paper plates sharing their appreciation for the meals provided under the Older Americans Act.
