The Mansfield Noon Optimist Club got the latest from Washington Wednesday, from someone who's deeply involved in the inner-workings of the federal government.

Congressman Bob Gibbs was the keynote speaker for the club's weekly luncheon at the Holiday Inn. Gibbs spoke of his concerns about Obamacare, the growing national debt, and the stagnant economy.

Gibbs is a lead sponsor of a bill called the Water Resources Reform Development Act, which seeks to improve maritime transportation and commerce.

The bill is in a House-Senate conference committee to iron-out differences between the two chambers. He hopes the final measure will go to the President next month.
