WESTON - Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) discussed the current fiscal crisis and answered questions at a roundtable discussion yesterday in Weston.

During the discussion, hosted by the Weston's League of Woman Voters, Himes says people will feel significant effects if Congress does not act quickly on the possibility of automatic spending cuts to government programs.

Himes says he hopes Congress can strike a fair deal before the deadline on March 1.
