Reid to push reform agenda
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, vowed Thursday to mirror much of the same proposals House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, will try to push through her chamber, albeit at a considerably slower pace.

Reid released a list of the first 10 bills he plans to have the Senate consider:

1. Ethics reform
2. Raising the minimum wage
3. Medicare Prescription Drug program reform
4. Acting on the 9/11 Commission Recommendations
5. Funding stem cell research
6. Energy reform
7. Easing the financial burden of college tuition
8. Strengthening and rebuilding America's military
9. Comprehensive immigration reform
10. Pay-as-you-go legislation

-- CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney
