Crapo to Speak at Bonners Ferry Luncheon

Will address government spending, citizen privacy issues August 6

Washington, D.C.  - Recent concerns over federal government debt and the intrusion into the private business of Americans by the IRS, federal financial bureaus and other federal agencies will be discussed by Idaho Senator Mike Crapo in Bonners Ferry on August 6 th.

 

Crapo will keynote a public community luncheon organized by Bonners Ferry business and civic leaders.  The 12:30 PM midday event will be held at the Kootenai River Inn on U.S. 95 in Bonners Ferry.

 

Crapo is the lead Republican on the Senate Banking Committee and a senior member of the Senate Finance Committee.  He served on the President's Commission on Federal Responsibility and Reform and on the informal Gang of Six, a bipartisan group of Senators seeking to reduce federal spending and the debt.  During visits around Idaho during the August state work period, Crapo will note how invasion of personal privacy issues continues to grow under federal agencies, ranging from the IRS to the National Security Agency, to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  He is also promoting tax reform ideas which could make the U.S. tax code more fair for taxpayers and investors alike.
