WASHINGTON, DC - Jan. 30: Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., and Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., during the markup of an economic stimulus bill. Ranking member Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, said he would work with Finance Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., to defeat amendments offered to the economic stimulus bill the panel was to mark up Tuesday afternoon. Grassley said he would go along with efforts by Baucus, D-Mont., to extend unemployment benefits, which he views as premature given current unemployment rates. In exchange, he said he expects the Finance panel to remove the income caps on tax rebates included in the bill (HR 5140) passed by the House Tuesday. That package combined tax rebates for individuals with tax incentives for immediate business investments. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
