CINCINNATI (AP) - An Ohio congressman will hear from constituents back home about the federal budget standoff in Washington.
Republican Rep. Steve Chabot (SHA'-but) scheduled two town halls Monday in his Cincinnati area district. He has meetings in suburban Montgomery and in Miami Township.He has said the sequester that triggered across-the-board budget cuts isn't the best way to deal with the nation's financial issues, but that it's a least a step toward slowing spending growth.
A Chabot town hall two years ago generated controversy when a security guard confiscated cameras activists were using to videotape the meeting. After that, Chabot began inviting constituents who didn't want to be videotaped to meet with him privately.
He held his seat for seven terms before losing the 2008 election, then won it back in 2010.
