Reid: Senate Will Take up Jobs Bill Next Week

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will take up a jobs bill Monday and he hopes it will have Republican support.

Key Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have been working on a bipartisan plan to give businesses a tax break for hiring unemployed workers. The bill under discussion Thursday would also extend unemployment payments for those whose benefits have run out, and would renew a program that offers the jobless a subsidy for health insurance premiums under the COBRA program.

Reid said Thursday morning he hopes senators will be ready to unveil all the details of a bipartisan proposal later in the day or on Friday.
