Charged with cutting $1.5 trillion from the federal deficit, Reid will also tap Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) and Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) for the “Super Committee.”
Congressional leaders have until August 16 to decide who will serve on the committee, which must report its recommendations to Congress by November 23.
Reid said last week he would only appoint members who are not “locked-in” to any positions, adding he hopes for a compromise including substantial spending cuts, but including new revenues.
