Local senator hitting the streets to take questions about the economy
CENTRAL, La (FOX44) - As the economy starts to try to recover, one Louisiana senator is hitting the streets taking your questions.
David Vitter was hosting the first of three economy debt forums on the morning of Aug. 9 in Central.
The goal is to explain what the downgrade of credit is, and how it impacts everything from retirement to getting a new credit card.
People we spoke with say the recent activity in Washington is hurting lots of people whose future is now uncertain. Others we spoke with say Vitter was able to calm some fears about the economy.
From Central, the senator will host two forums in Lafayette.
