Public interest groups want Congress to make changes to cutbacks

    Right now at City Hall, members of the Pennsylvania Public Interest Research Group and PennEnvironment are calling on Congress to change its budget cutbacks.

    Advocates say they want lawmakers to cut spending on waste, special interest subsidies and tax loopholes instead of cutting “key national priorities” like infrastructure, food and safety.

    PennPIRG is expected to release a comparison chart detailing where its members say funding should be re-allocated.
