Deadline Extended for NIF Conversation on National Debt

The National Issues Forums has announced an extension to the deadline for reporting on local dialogue & deliberative forums on their current, featured issue, the National Debt.  Interested groups can participate in the conversation, adding their voices to the eventual report, by contacting an NIF regional coordinator.  From their announcement

The Congressional Super Committee did not resolve the debt issue, and we believe it will not be resolved any time soon. The national debt is going to be with us for a long time and is an issue that needs thoughtful, deliberative public attention. You can help by holding forums using the issue book, A Nation in Debt: How Can We Pay the Bills?. We have extended the deadline to July 31, 2012 to collect additional questionnaires for the national report on forums on the debt. Please participate so your community’s well-deliberated thoughts can be included in a report we will share with incoming policy-makers in 2013.

You can learn more about the National Issues Forums national conversation on this issue by visiting their website, www.nifi.org.  More information and a list of regional coordinators can be dowloaded from here.
