We are proud to welcome Dr. Martin Romitti, Director of Economic and Public Policy Research at the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute, for a presentation with REMI economist Scott Nystrom on the potential economic impact of federal sequestration cuts.

We will offer this presentation in two sessions:
