Washington, D.C. — 

Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) today announced he would be holding a series of town hall meetings across South Dakota to discuss the recently passed tax relief package, the upcoming debt ceiling negotiations, and the need to cut spending in Washington.

“It is important for me to let South Dakotans know the path ahead when it comes to addressing our nation’s financial stability,” said Thune. “While the tax relief package signed into law is not perfect, the consequences of inaction would have been severe as tax rates were scheduled to go up on every South Dakotan. Our economy continues to be hampered by soaring debt and deficits, and without addressing the out-of-control spending in Washington, the struggles will continue. We have a lot of work to do and I want to hear from South Dakotans as Congress prepares to address our nation’s debt limit and overall federal spending in the weeks ahead.”

The public is encouraged to attend. Tentative schedule below.
