Sen. Harkin: Stimulus package too small

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin says that the $825-billion stimulus bill that's been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives may be too small to prompt economic recovery.

The Iowa Democrat said on Thursday that he was concerned about tax-cut provisions in the bill.

Harkin says it might not be enough, and that Congress should actually be doing more than it is doing.

Harkin says the bill needs to be seen as a more immediate kick-start to the economy.

The Senate is expected to vote on its version of the bill next week.
