PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) - One day after federal spending cuts are set to take effect, Congressman John Boehner, (R) West Chester, will be in the Buckeye State.
The US Speaker of the House will host his annual Farm Forum Saturday morning in Piqua.
The forum brings together farmers and agricultural experts to discuss the industry.
Boehner is sure to field questions about sequestration .
He emerged from a White House meeting Friday and said that higher taxes won't be part of any deal to solve the country's budget problems.
Boehner did say that the House will move ahead next week with legislation to keep the government running beyond March.
The AP reported that Boehner's office, in a statement describing the meeting, said he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Obama they're willing to close loopholes but only to lower taxes overall, not to replace spending cuts.
Obama and congressional leaders agreed that Congress should pass a bill funding the government while they keep working on a way to replace the spending cuts, Boehner's office said.
Boehner's farm forum will be held at Edison Community College from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm. The college is located at 1973 Edison Drive. This is the 22nd year for the event.
