Burr likely to vote against stimulus package if it doesn’t change; Hagan undecided

U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., said he will vote against the stimulus package, as it stands now.
U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., hasn’t decided yet.
While Burr supports many of the projects in the stimulus plan, his office said they should go through the normal appropriations process
“He would agree that the North Carolina Research Campus will generate jobs,” spokesman Chris Walker said. “The question is, should it be funded through normal appropriations or a stimulus project.”
Democrats in the Senate conceded Tuesday they do not have enough votes to pass the $900 billion bill. Revisions could mean lawmakers will miss a self-imposed Feb. 13 deadline to have the bill on the president’s desk.
The House passed an $819 billion version last week.
