Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction
In response to this week’s legislation raising the federal debt limit ceiling and creating a new Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, U.S. Senator David Vitter announced he is introducing a bill requiring 48-hour disclosure of campaign contributions over $1,000 to any appointed member of the committee or their leadership PACs.
“We need to see full transparency and accountability because these committee members will be making huge decisions with a lot on the line,” Senator Vitter said.
The 48-hour rule would continue until the committee expires on January 21, 2012.
