Most of the members of the Congressional "super committee" have been named; and from the northwest, Washington Senator Patty Murray is appointed as a Co-Chair. U.S. Representative Greg Walden was in Bend Wednesday and tells our news partner, News Channel 21, that he believes the super committee will be very effective: “The negotiations between the Majority Leader Eric Kantor and the Vice President, Joe Biden produced a lot of different agreements that never necessarily came to fruition. Because those talks kind of fell apart, but there's actually a lot of a body of work that's been done independent of this committee, that it can take advantage of, moving forward." Walden says he is did not expect to be chosen for the super committee, but he feels he could have done a lot of good work in it. He says the committee has until November 23rd to report back to the full Congress on their recommendations. Then the Congress has to vote on them by December 23rd, or some automatic cuts take place that could be more severe than what any recommendations would be.
