Super committee launches website
The joint congressional committee charged with cutting $1.2 trillion from the budget lauched its website on Tuesday.
Deficitreduction.gov, which has a wide blue banner at the top featuring the names of the panel and the cochairs -- Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. -- is streaming the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction's first hearing on Tuesday. The site also has archived video from a preliminary hearing held on Sept. 8.
The calendar section of the site lists only September meetings, the latest of which is Tuesday's. The contact section has a form for readers to fill out and promises that "we won't be able to respond directly to every recommendation, but we will incorporate your guidance in our work."
