GOP Leaders Say Little Senate Backing on Stimulus

WASHINGTON (AP) - The senate today begins debating its version
of an economic stimulus package.
At more than $880 billion, the Senate version is $70 billion
larger than what passed the House and both sides may want changes.
But Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions says many of his constituents are
questioning why its coming up short on infrastructure projects.
A top senate Democrat is promising more money for
infrastructure.
That's one of many changes that are possible as senators work to
amend the measure.
Republicans want it to do more to deal with the housing crisis.
They also want to eliminate some non stimulative spending.
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden plan to meet
with Congressional leaders today at the White House.
