U.S. Congressman Randy Neugebauer made a stop in Big Spring Wednesday during his tour through Texas.

Neugebauer dropped by the monthly Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce board meeting and was speaker at a Town Hall Meeting, which took place at the Hall for the Arts at Howard College.

“Randy makes every attempt to reach out to his constituency and is always there when we need him,” Dr. Cheryl Sparks, president of Howard College, said. “We are always pleased to have him.”

During the meetings, Neugebauer spoke about about ways the nation can begin to climb out of debt.

“The deficit in our debt is not a small problem. It has become a big problem and will continue to grow unless we do something,” Neugebauer said. “It's a big problem and big problems need big solutions.”

He expressed that if the nation plans on climbing out of this debt, major changes are needed, including extreme cutbacks.
