Washington, D.C. – Senate Democrats hosted a roundtable discussion with advocacy groups on the federal budget.

The public safety depends not only on military spending but also on investments in airport security, public health, science and research, emergency preparedness, education, and diplomacy.  In order to fund these priorities, there needs to be a balance between defense and nondefense spending in the budget.
