Senate Deal

Republican and Democratic leaders in the Senate reached agreement today on a power-sharing agreement to reflect the chamber's 50-50 split between the parties. The deal will put equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans on each committee, but will install Republicans in the chairmanships. NPR's Peter Kenyon reports from the Capitol.
