In addition to the President’s fiscal commission, another bipartisan group has been at work this year on federal budget recommendations. This panel, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Debt Reduction Task Force, plans to release its final report on Wednesday.
The task force is chaired by Pete Domenici and Alice Rivlin and includes former administration officials, former elected officials from all levels of government, and others with diverse perspectives.
“As a member of the task force,” said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition, “I can say that our deliberations have been comprehensive and respectful of differing points of view. The resulting plan will show at least one way out of the fiscal swamp.”
