HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama A&M University hosted a town hall meeting Monday afternoon with Congressman Mo Brooks in the engineering building.

Many people, including some college students, came out to get an update about what is happening in Washington, DC.

Brooks said it's important for young people to be informed because what is happening in Washington will impact their future.

"I feel it's a great opportunity to express and give questions that we have concern for figuring out what deficits that we have to take over in the future," said student, Roderick Cook.

"They need to make informed decisions on which of the various options we have for dealing with that deficit or debt are best for our county and best for them," said Brooks.

He said it is great to see young people involved.
