Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Thursday morning area congressman Mac Thornberry will be in Amarillo to address possible impacts the across-the-board cuts could have on our community.

The Amarillo Chamber of Commerce is hosting a meeting, where Thornberry will speak with local businesses about cuts set to take place in two weeks.

There has been wide-spread agreement that the effects of automatic cuts on defense could significantly impair the ability of the military to protect our nation's security.
