Congressman Jones Discussing Debt Ceiling In Jacksonville

U.S. Rep. Walter Jones is visiting Jacksonville to discuss several issues, including his "no" vote on raising the debt ceiling.

The Republican congressman is speaking Tuesday morning at a forum at City Hall. The event is sponsored by a committee of the Jacksonville-Onslow Chamber of Commerce.

Janet Bowen of the chamber says the moderator will take written questions from the audience and that Jones will answer as many as possible in the hour-long forum. Jones says he will discuss his vote on the debt ceiling and that he also hopes to explain his opposition to trade agreements.

Last week, Congress approved a bill that raised the U.S. debt ceiling and trimmed spending.
