Brown says stimulus package isn't enough
(2008-01-24)
(WOUB) - An Ohio Senator says the proposed economic stimulus package being talked about is a good one, but is not good enough.

The U.S. House of Representatives reached a tentative deal on the economic stimulus package proposed by President Bush.

Sources on Capitol Hill and the Treasury Department say the plan would likely give rebate checks of about 600 dollars for individuals, or up to 12-hundred for couples.

Brown, a Democrat, says he thinks the stimulus package released Thursday is a step in the right direction - but it needs to go further.

As many as 116 million American families could get a rebate check.
