Dems & GOP demand open meetings for “super committee”

From Talking Points Memo:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) appointed three Democrats to a 12-member deficit Super Committee Tuesday, giving observers and advocates an early indication of how the committee will function as it seeks over a trillion dollars in further deficit cuts by the end of the year.

Just as important as who serves on the panel, though, is the question of whether it will function like most Congressional committees do—open to press and voters, with conflicts of interest disclosed publicly, if not always swiftly or conveniently.
