ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The University of Central Florida is hosting five former congressmen for a symposium for high school students on the federal budget process.

The Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government is presenting Monday's event, which will examine entitlements, defense deficits and taxes.

Frey will lead a panel discussion and debate those issues with former congressmen Jason Altmire, Allen Boyd, the Rev. James Allen Newman, Cliff Stearns and Tom Tauke.

A budget exercise led by the groups Concord Coalition and the Campaign to Fix the Debt will take the attendees, students and members of UCF's Learning Institute for Elders through a budget balancing simulation.
