Cadet Virtual Visit from Phil Swagel CBO
Cadets were fortunate to have a great virtual visit from Phil Swagel, 10th Director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Cadets learned about the challenging and important tasks that the CBO carries out each day and were able to ask Mr. Swagel questions that few others would be able to answer. The CBO was established in 1975 to produce independent, non-partisan analyses of economic and budgetary issues in support of the Congressional budget process. The agency plays a key role in analyzing the cost estimates for legislation proposed in Congress but does not make policy recommendations.
