Dozens of aides and capitol police officers have tested positive for anthrax exposure...
Sen. Tom Daschle/Majority Leader: Testing positive is not the same as actual cases...no one has anthrax. But Senate leaders are promising business will go on-- and to prove it-- passed the first spending bill of the new fiscal year. Meanwhile, CBS News has learned the anthrax spores sent by letter to Senator Daschle may not be quite as potent as first thought. And The CDC now says preliminary genetic tests show the strains of anthrax that infected people at NBC in New York and at American President Bush-- on his way China-- promised to end Americas anthrax nightmare.
