Washington, DC - Senator Mike Crapo will offer Idahoans an update on federal spending, health care, and other issues being debated in Congress during a statewide teleconference tomorrow evening, June 9th. Crapo is inviting Idahoans to participate in his iTownhall meeting, which begins at 7:00 p.m. Mountain/6:00 p.m. Pacific.

In order to participate in the iTownHall meeting, all you need is a telephone. Participation is voluntary, and listeners are given an opportunity to ask the Senator about topics regarding federal policies or legislation.

"We are headed into a busy summer with many issues up for debate, including our deficit spending and debt issues, financial reform and implementation of the new health care legislation," Crapo said. "If that isn't enough, we may be debating energy legislation and the nomination of a new member of the U.S. Supreme Court before the fall."

Following the call, an audio file (MP3) of the full call will be posted on the website. A transcript will be posted at a later date.
