The Senate is considering the nomination of John Thomas Fowlkes Jr. of Tennessee to be U.S. district judge for the Western District of Tennessee.  The Senate is also considering S. 2237, the increased payroll tax credit and bonus depreciation bill.  Republican senators continue to focus on creating jobs, lowering the deficit, reducing gas prices, and replacing the Democrats' health care bill with reforms that will actually lower costs.
