(Topeka, KS)--Senator Sam Brownback (R - KS) says the stimulus bill that recently passed the House and Senate, and now awaits the signature of President Barack Obama, is more of a spending bill than anything else, and may not adequately stimulate the economy.

He said there are aspects of the bill he likes, and could have even supported separately, but not as part of the stimulus plan. He said he likes the focus on highways, food stamps and wind energy.

Brownback also said he will continue to fight to ensure Kansas gets its fair share of stimulus funding in the future.

The Senator said the possibility of Governor Kathleen Sebelius being a part of the Obama administration is an "interesting prospect," and would not comment on his own possible run for the Governor's office in 2010.
