Kennedy's office to close in 60 days

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Following Sen. Edward Kennedy's death, the staff in his personal office will have 60 days to archive his materials and close his office, according to the Secretary of the Senate's office, which oversees the process.

Kennedy staff members must only work on closing the office, and cannot continue any legislative or other work they had underway before his death.

All ongoing constituent casework will need to be either closed out or transferred to another member of the Massachusetts delegation, said Beth Provenzano, an aide to Secretary of the Senate Nancy Erickson.

    There should be an exception for health care reform! America, as dumb as they've been about this issue, must have this reform RAMMED down their throats! Let'em complain all they want, just like cash for clunkers, they'll realize how important it is after we begin to implement it! I'd also like to see the insurance companies plan B...LOL!
