By now, you've all heard of conference committee: that magical land were a couple powerbrokers from the House and a couple poobahs from the Senate meet to decide what the final budget will look like. Yesterday, the representatives from both chambers were named. They are:
Senate: Kent Conrad, Judd Gregg, and Patty Murray.
House: John Spratt, Allen Boyd, Paul Ryan, Rosa DeLauro, and Jeb Hensarling.
In both cases, you have the chairman and ranking member of the relevant budget committee. That means Conrad and Gregg in the Senate and Spratt and Ryan in the House. The others are appointed to the process.
