Who would think something that originates 303 miles away in Washington could hurt area families in the Southern Tier?  The truth is, there is a lot of information to be aware of.

On Monday March 4th at 3pm, there is a special news conference that brings local Human Service agencies together to outline the sequester cuts' impact on area residents.  The meeting is open to all residents and will take place at the Broome County Council of Churches, 3 Otseningo Street (off Conklin Avenue) in Binghamton.

Leaders of local human services agencies will come together Monday to highlight the significant cuts to programs and services that will happen as a result of Congress's failure to take action.

Those gathered will discuss how these automatic cuts to domestic spending will have a devastating impact on our local community.  This is one meeting everyone should be aware of.
