Maine Senators Support Stimulus Bill 

They’re among only three senators to break ranks with their party and support the bill.

The measure was approved in the senate by a vote of 61-to-37.

When speaking to TV5, Senator Collins said she wants to see the final package come in at less than 800-billion dollars, but she agrees with the president that it’s time to move ahead with the plan.

It’s now up to house and senate negotiators to work out a compromise version of the bill.
