Lawmakers from both parties reportedly expect up to 30 billion dollars in additional spending on infrastructure to be targeted in the legislation. But republican senate John Kyl of Arizona, member of the finance committee, says the bill needs some major overhaul because it's too heavy on spending. "And it's ineffective. I think the theory of it is if you throw enough money, somehow others will trickle down the people and that will help stimulate the economy, but the ecnomists we've talked to say that's not going to work. I think the people understand that. So I see the support in senate actually is eroding". Both Durbin and Kyl were on "Fox News Sunday".

The Obama administration's new special envoy to the Middle East, former Senator George Mitchell, is in Saudi Arabia today. It's his last stop on a regional tour aimed at reviving the Middle East peace efforts and shoring up the shaky ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. Kelly McEvers reports from Riyadh.

 

Mitchell met with Saudi King Abdullah to discuss how the two allies can help bring a lasting peace after the recent Israeli military operation in Gaza. Yesterday Mitchell met Jordanian officials and reassured them the new US administration is giving priority to the Middle East. He delivered a similar message on previous stops in Egypt and the West Bank. One Saudi official, former ambassador to the US, Prince Turki al-Faisal, recently wrote that if the US wants to keep playing a leadership role in the Middle East, it must drastically revise its policies on the Arab-Israeli conflict. In 2002, Saudi Arabia floated its own comprehensive peace plan, but analysts here say that plan was largely ignored by the US and Israel. For NPR News, I'm Kelly McEvers, Riyadh.

Melnykovych says more than 400, 000 homes and businesses across Kentucky are still without electricity nearly a week after the ice storm struck the state.
