WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats yesterday said they plan on Monday to take up the first of a series of jobs bills, which will include expansion of the Build America Bonds and TIGER grant programs, an extension of the transportation law, and transportation and water infrastructure funding.

Tax-related items and spending items are expected to be split into separate bills, but sources yesterday said it is unclear which bill would come first. If the Senate follows the Democratic leadership’s preferred timeline, the bill would be approved by next Friday.
