How Federal Deficit Cutting Might Impact Nevada

As part of a deal to reduce the nation's deficit, Congress created a "super committee" tasked with finding $1.2 trillion in cuts over the next ten years. With those cuts could come reduced funding for state programs that rely on federal money. The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction as it is officially known, has been working since September but has been pretty quiet about what's going on.
 
Ron Haskins, visiting scholar at UNLV's Brookings Mountain West and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution will give a lecture on how federal deficit cutting might impact states like Nevada. He joins us to discuss how the super committee is working and what might be in store for Nevadans.
