He and two other Senators have put together an economic stimulus package they say would benefit low to middle income families.

It would provide five billion dollars in emergency grants to states that need to set up worker-retraining programs for laid-off employees.
The bill would extend unemployment benefits to 39 weeks from 26.

Among the most popular cars reported stolen-- the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord remain the favorites among thieves.
