Good afternoon, everybody. So glad you with us. I'm Catherine Callaway at the CNN Center in Atlanta with a look at what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

A record turnout is expected in Florida where voters are casting ballots for their presidential nominees. Nearly one million Floridians have already casted early an absentee ballot. That is nearly the total number of Florida's(没有) voters who took part in the 2000 primaries. The race is key for the(没有) Republican candidates while the(没有) results just won't count for the(没有) Democrats, because the Democratic Party punished the state for moving up its primary day.

Congress is hoping to help ease the economic worries amid Americans. The House will vote on a 115 million dollars stimulus package. That's been championed by the president. It is expected to pass easily before having a much tougher time though in the Senate. And the Federal Reserve is beginning a two-day meeting today. Many investors are expecting the FED to lower interest rates again. You may remember just last week they made a rare emergency cut. The moves are all part of an effort to help stimulate the economy.

Mexican authorities now had to go ahead to find and arrest Marine Corporal Cesar Laurean. A court there issued a warrant for the fugitive. It's believed that he fled to his native Mexico to avoid charges in the death of fellow Marine Marina Lauterbach. Investigators in North Carolina say that he killed the pregnant women and buried her and her unborn child. Charred remains in his backyard.

It looks like you will get to see a full Grammy Awards show next month because the Writers Guild's approved an interim deal to allow its striking members to actually write for the show. The guild says that it supports union musicians because they face many as the same issues with the new media that they do. The Grammy is there on February 10th.

And those are the headlines for you right now. Stay with CNN for more on these stories and other news of the day.
