Senate turns attention to $136 billion tax cut bill
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

CAPITOL HILL Senators have begun on a wide-ranging corporate tax bill.

In a rare weekend session, the Senate plans to vote in the early afternoon on ending procedural roadblocks to the 136 (b) billion dollar bill -- which contains breaks for everything from large corporations to importers of Chinese ceiling fans.

Supporters of the measure are predicting victory, with final passage possible later in the day.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist noted that it's unusual to work on a Sunday, but necessary to "complete the nation's business."

The House adjourned yesterday, allowing members to get out of town for campaigning.
