Special to the Review
The Athens Review

Athens — U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling will discuss some of the actions taken by House Republicans to cut wasteful spending, and set America back on a fiscal path that will enable the economy to grow and create jobs with the citizens of Henderson County.

The discussions and Washington legislative update will be at a town hall meeting at 9:30 a.m., Jan. 30, at the Henderson County Annex Meeting Room at 125 N. Prairieville St., Athens.

“Our nation is at a crossroads. East Texans know that the greatest threat to the American economy is the American debt crisis — the worst in our history,” Hensarling said. “I am committed to putting America back on the road to economic growth and job creation by putting an end to Washington’s job-destroying spending spree.”

Hensarling, a leading fiscal conservative and Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, will also discuss how to reduce Washington red-tape and restore confidence and certainty to job creators, so that they can hire new workers and create jobs.
