U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop Jr. stopped by Albany Tech to hold a deficit reduction fiscal workshop.

Bishop spoke to the public about the causes and consequences of the current federal deficit.

Listeners had the chance to get interactive and learn what it's like to balance a federal budget. They were split into groups to review current budget priorities and then make their own suggestions.

The event was a joint effort by Representative Sanford Bishop Jr. and the Concord Coalition.
