WASHINGTON, DC - Jan. 30: Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., and ranking member Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, before the markup of an economic stimulus bill. Grassley said he would work with Finance Chairman Max Baucus to defeat amendments offered to the economic stimulus bill the panel was to mark up Tuesday afternoon. Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Finance Committee, 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)
