Senate Calendar

The Senate is considering S. 1813, the highway bill.  The Senate is also voting on the nominations of Mary Elizabeth Phillips, of Missouri, to be United States district judge for the Western District of Missouri, and Thomas Owen Rice, of Washington, to be United States district judge for the Eastern District of Washington. 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.
