Pahrmnp, NV 89048 Senator Bryan conducts Town Hall meeting by Patti Babcock United States Senator Richard Bryan was greeted by a room lull of citizens with questions when he held a Town Hall meeting at the Community Center Wednesday. The former Governor has been a U.S. Senator/br nine years. Every year during the August recess, he travels throughout the State holding Town Hall meetings to gain input and answer questions from his constitu- ents. Ed Fox asked what happened to the revenue to widen Highway 160 from Pahrump to Las Vegas. Bryan said the money comes from the Ap- propriations and Environment and PublicWorks committees, and he is not on either commit- tee. Historically, if a project is earmarked in the report lan- guage, these projects are done. The ten million dollars to com- plete the project was to come from the Public Lands and Highway Funds since 85% of Nevada is government land. However, the Federal Depart- mentofTransportationdecided to use the funds for other projects Bryan said this is the only time he knows of when a project that was earmarked wasn't granted the funds. It should have happened. He said he and Senator Harry Reid have met with the Secretary of f Transportation and are pressing forward to try to have the project funded. The Senator fielded questions about nuclear waste storage, the high incidence of cancer in Nevada, water quality, school programs for special needs children, welfare reform, U.S. troops in Bosnia, and finally about Medicare and Social Security. Bryan stressed the need to find solutions to preserve the Social Security Trust Fund. He displayed a chart (see below) showing the system depleted by 2029 if nothing is done. i i Social Security Trust Fund Balance I I Soce: 1997 OASD4 TnJsleet' Relxxt Personal and Family Physicians W,hen Chris needed a physical for football, his morn knew just where to go.
