Southeast Missouri’s Representative in Congress will be paying us all a visit today.
Congressman Jason Smith of the 8th District will be holding a public forum on the current partial government shutdown at 12:45 this afternoon.
It’ll be at Jen’s Diner in Poplar Bluff.
Also on the agenda: a chance to talk about the border security concerns at the center of the shutdown.
Smith will lead a public discussion about what area residents would like to see in a budget deal on the border.
Smith’s press release says he often holds public listening posts and forums on similar topics.
