CLL to present taxes and spending session Jan. 29

The Center for Lifelong Learning at Central Lakes College, Brainerd, will present Louis Johnston with “Taxes and Spending: What’s Ahead for the U.S. and Minnesota?” from 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, in the Business and Industry Center.

Taxes, spending and the size of government are important issues at all levels of government. In this talk, Johnston will address three questions:

• What are the current and future challenges faced by the state and federal governments?

• What are the differences between the political challenges and the economic challenges (they are not the same)?

• How can individual citizens make sense of these issues and get involved in their solution?

The fee is $6 for non-members but free to members of the Center for Lifelong Learning.
