When the weather turns to cold and snow begins to creep into the forecast, politicians tend to make trips to New Hampshire. The usual drive is because of Presidential ambition. Isakson has his 2016 plans (which are to run for re-election), but instead is traveling North in order to promote his plan of biennial budgeting with Senate Co-Sponsor Jean Shaheen in her home state. From a press release sent via Shaheen’s office:
U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) will host U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) to discuss their efforts to bridge the partisan gap in Washington and reform the federal budgeting process at 2:00 p.m. Monday, November 11, at UNH’s Warren B. Rudman Center in Concord. Senators Shaheen and Isakson have introduced a plan to reform the broken federal budget process by moving it to a biennial process which will help avoid manufactured budget crises in the future.
Earlier, Senator Shaheen will honor New Hampshire veterans at the NH State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen at 11:00 a.m. Shaheen will be joined by other New Hampshire officials and will deliver brief remarks at the annual Veterans Day observance.
We’ll let you know if there are any reports of Isakson talking to brokers leasing office space or if he drops by the Manchester Union Leader “for a chat”.
