KBBI: Begich Talks Development, Port Funding During Homer Visit

U.S. Senator Mark Begich was in Homer over the weekend to provide an update on what’s happening in Washington, DC. He also spent his time during the town hall forum to talk about his expectations for Alaska.

A crowd of about 50 people gathered at the Kachemak Bay Campus Sunday afternoon to connect with the senator. Begich started out discussing the most recent announcement from the United States Postal Service regarding ending Saturday mail delivery, the need for Congress to tighten the purse strings on federal coffers and the upcoming March 1 sequestration deadline, which is when a series of automatic spending cuts go into effect unless Congress acts to prevent them.
