US - The conferees that will meet with House conferees to negotiate final pension reform legislation were finally announced on Friday.
The conferees were expected to be announced as far back as mid-February, but for a continued dispute over the size and make-up of the committee.
Agreement was finally reached last week that it would consist of 15 members, with nine Republicans and six Democrats.
Iowa senator and US senate committee on finance Chuck Grassley (pictured) said the announcement pulled pension reform “out of the ditch and back on the road”.
Grassley said he was confident the committee could get a bill to the President before the April recess that would strengthen the retirement security of all Americans.
“I look forward to continuing the bipartisan work with my colleagues in the House and Senate,” he said.
The committee’s Republican members are senators Grassley, Hatch, Lott, Snowe, Santorum, Enzi, Gregg, DeWine, Isakson. The seven Democrats are Senators Baucus, Rockefeller, Conrad, Bingaman, Kennedy, Harkin, and Mikulski.
