Wis. Congressman Paul Ryan to tour his district


JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan plans to tour his southeastern Wisconsin district to talk about federal policy issues.

He's going to 19 communities from Monday to April 29. His district includes parts or all of Rock, Racine, Walworth, Kenosha, Waukesha and Milwaukee counties.

Ryan is the House Budget Committee Chairman and his budget proposal has been embraced by the House Republican leadership. He wants to reduce spending by more than $5 trillion over 10 years with structural overhauls to Medicare and Medicaid while also making permanent all Bush-era tax cuts.

In a statement, Ryan says he looks forward to talking about the issues of the district and how Congress can reduce the nation's $14 trillion in debt, rein in spending, and help economic growth.
