Congressional Budget Office Chief Named

From Associated Press

Congressional Democrats have named economist Robert D. Reischauer, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, to head the Congressional Budget Office.

Reischauer, a former CBO official, is considered moderate and pragmatic by Democrats and Republicans. The CBO is expected to be a nonpartisan adviser, even though in this case its director was appointed by the leaders of a House and Senate that are both controlled by Democrats.
