For those who worry that bipartisanship is dead, here’s some good news. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore. (pictured)
, who has been appointed by presumptive House Speaker John Boehner to head the transition to next year’s Congress, is inviting Democrats into the process, The Hill reports
Walden chose Democratic Reps. Robert Brady of Pennsylvania and Rob Andrews of New Jersey to act as liaisons for the change. He plans to meet with both of them this week as the House returns to work.
Andrews tells The Hill that he appreciates the opportunity. He has some thoughts on fixing the House schedule. Many members bemoan the haphazard nature of their weekly schedule and the tendency to hold votes during committee hearings.
Democrats also provided plenty of ideas for increasing the transparency, efficiency and effectiveness of the House in surveys given to all members.
