Update Notes for September 15, 2011

Today saw the swearing in or two new members of the House, both elected in special elections on Tuesday, September 13.

Representative Mark Amodei (R – NV) (pronounced AM-uh-dei like “Amadeus”) was sworn in.  He represents the second district in Nevada replacing Dean Heller, who was appointed to the Senate in May.

Representative Bob Turner (R – NY) was sworn in.  He represents the ninth district in New York, replaced disgraced Representative Anthony Wiener.  Jennifer Manning of the Library of Congress notes that at age 70, Turner is the oldest “Freshman” House member in almost 50 years.

They are outlined below.  I also want to note (for google to index) that the official name of the “Supercommittee” that is going to be doing all the recommendations for budget cuts in the next few weeks is the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction and we do provide contact information for them here.
