Tightening Up At The White House


In Business This Week

TIGHTENING UP AT THE WHITE HOUSE

White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta finally is set to rein in President Clinton's freewheeling advisers with a long-awaited reorganization. Its key aim is expected to be an end to "floaters"--aides who have no specific jobs. Senior Adviser George Stephanopoulos, now glued to Clinton's side, will become Panetta's policy deputy. Panetta also plans to limit the use of outside political consultants, including '92 campaign stalwarts Paul Begala and Mandy Grunwald. Until Panetta replaces political director Joan Baggett next year, he will use a team approach to setting political strategy. The team members: Baggett, Deputy Staff Chief Harold Ickes, and aide Doug Sosnik.EDITED BY THANE PETERSON
