US Senator Mark Kirk is setting his priorities for his return to Washington. Kirk hasn't been back to the US Senate since suffering a stroke earlier this year, but says he's planning to return in January. Kirk says banning sewage dumping in the Great Lakes will be his priority for this Congress. The 53-year-old Republican says he's feeling good after his appearance at the Willis Tower on Sunday for a Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago fundraiser, although he admits he took a long nap after climbing 37 floors.
