Congressional Super Committee Named

The Super Committee created by the debt ceiling agreement is now in place. This Committee has the responsibility to achieve $1.5 trillion in additional deficit reduction by the end of 2011.

Failure to produce an agreement on further deficit reduction will result in automatic across-the-board cuts of at least 7 percent for many federal agencies and programs.

The Super Committee's members are:

Senate Democrats
Patty Murray (Wash.) Co-chair
John Kerry (Mass.)
Max Baucus (Mont.)

Senate Republicans
Rob Portman (Ohio)
Jon Kyl (Ariz.)
Pat Toomey (Pa.)

House Democrats
James Clyburn (S.C.)
Chris Van Hollen (Md.)
Xavier Becerra (Calif.)

House Republicans
Jeb Hensarling (Texas) Co-chair
Dave Camp (Mich.)
Fred Upton (Mich.)

The committee includes chairs of existing committees (Camp, Ways and Means; Upton, Energy and Commerce; Baucus, Finance; Murray, Veterans Affairs) which is a change since originally no committee chairs were to be appointed. The committees most represented on the Super Committee are Senate Finance (three members), House Budget (three) and House Ways and Means (two).
