Congressman Derek Kilmer

February 21, 2013

In this episode of Northwest Now, host Tom Layson sits down for an extended conversation with sixth district freshman Congressman Derek Kilmer. This program was recorded during a congressional recess just before the March 1 deadline for the across-the-board "sequestration" budget cuts. The conversation is focused on the federal budget, but also touches on the defense budget, the SR 167 project, concerns about the 520 bridge, and immigration reform.

Program will be available online after broadcast.


The conversation continues...

A Producer's Note on "The Conversation Continues" segments:

Northwest Now is an important part of KBTC's commitment to engage viewers by convening community stakeholders for meaningful conversations. But those conversations often continue after the televised portion of the show runs out of time. These web-only extras are offered so viewers can see the rest of the discussion if it happens to continue. Bear in mind, these segments aren't "made for television" in that the studio crew is sometimes getting extra shots or busy striking the set. So while it may not always be pretty, we hope you'll find it interesting.
