BPC Founders and Advisory Board Members Howard Baker, Tom Daschle and Bob Dole will introduce the Domenici-Rivlin Task Force and comment on the economic, political and international implications of America's growing debt burden.

After providing an overview of the Task Force, former Senate Budget Chairman Domenici (R-NM), and Dr. Rivlin, the first director of the Congressional Budget Office, former Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve Board, and Office of Management and Budget Director during the Clinton Administration, will answer questions from attendees at the Bipartisan Policy Center's brand new media facility in Washington, D.C. beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Under the leadership of former Senator Domenici and Dr. Rivlin, the BPC's Task Force, composed of the nation's leading budget authorities from both sides of the aisle, will develop a comprehensive and politically-viable plan for consideration by Congress and the Administration.
