Boehner names conferees for payroll tax bill

The House voted Tuesday to establish a bicameral conference to sort out the differences between the payroll tax bills passed by the two chambers. The Senate bill would extend the tax cut and other measures for two months to buy time for more negotiations, while the House version would last for a year.

House Republicans say the Senate needs to return to Washington and hammer out a yearlong extension of the tax cut that can pass both chambers. 

Camp and Upton are powerful committee chairmen, while Ellmers, Hayworth and Reed are freshman members. Walden was chairman of the GOP transition after the 2010 election. Brady is chairman of a Trade subcommittee, while Price is chairman of the Policy Committee.
