Senate Unveils $87B Jobs Bill But vote will have to wait because of snow By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff Posted Feb 11, 2010 1:47 PM CST 40 comments Comments Max Baucus, Charles Grassley, and Sen.

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon) (Newser) – Senate Democrats revealed their long-awaited $87 billion jobs bill today, but thanks to the snow, lawmakers may not get around to voting on it for a while. The bill calls for a combination of tax breaks for businesses and construction projects to boost employment, and has the support of two Republicans: Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch. Grassley and Max Baucus released the bill with a joint statement, stressing that it was only a draft, and could change. “We offer it as a first step in the Senate process,” they wrote. But any further steps will have to wait; the Senate isn’t voting on anything today because of the weather, and with a weeklong recess ahead, the bill isn’t likely to see any action until February 22, Reuters reports.
