National Figures to Visit NMSU

Las Cruces – A number of national figures will be at New Mexico State University for a September conference.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman Gen. James Cartwright and former Sen. Pete Domenici himself are just a few of the speakers lined up for the 2009 Domenici Public Policy Conference.

The conference takes place Sept. 16 and 17 at New Mexico State University's Corbett Center.

This is the second year of the conference, hosted by NMSU's Domenici Institute.

This year's topics will include the U.S. economy and national debt, homeland security and the U.S./Mexico border, national security, and nuclear energy.
As in last year's conference, students from universities around the state will have a chance to interact with the conference speakers and ask about their views at the conclusion of each session.
