President Obama will hold a news conference Tuesday to discuss fiscal matters. WFPL will carry NPR’s live special coverage starting at 1 p.m.
Officials tell the White House press corps that the president “will call on Congress to pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms to avoid the economically harmful consequences of the sequester for a few months.” He’s scheduled to issue that call around 1:15 p.m. ET.
On a side note, we’re having transmitter issues and some listeners may have trouble getting our signal. If that’s you, you can stream at WFPL.org.
