Democrats Planning to Move Ahead on Jobs Agenda

From the New York Times:

Senior Democrats say the House is preparing to quickly pass a $15 billion job-creating measure once it is approved by the Senate [which may happen as early as today], illustrating new urgency on the part of Democrats to show they are taking steps to improve the national employment picture.

Though House Democrats late last year passed a more sweeping $154 billion jobs and economic recovery package, senior aides and top lawmakers said the House was eager to send President Obama the Senate measure — perhaps by the end of the week — to secure an immediate victory on jobs. Democrats would then try to pass other initiatives intended to produce new employment opportunities.
