CADIZ – The federal government is taking action against its ballooning deficit and earmarked funds are being frozen to cut costs.

Jeanne Wilson, senior Appalachian regional representative for U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), met with Harrison County Commissioners on Monday to discuss matters impacting the federal, state and local levels. Wilson said a two-year freeze was in place on appropriations that affect Fiscal Years 2011-12.
