One hundred delegates from San Diego and Baja California, representing both the public and private sectors, talked with federal officials in Washington, D.C., last week.
The delegates' main concern was the potential impact on San Diego of threatened across-the-board federal spending cuts at the end of this year.
The San Diego County Regional Chamber of Commerce posted a blog on the goals and results of the D.C. trip.
