Vice President-elect Joe Biden says a new economic stimulus package will not be "politics as usual."

He says he wants the American taxpayer to know the measure won't include lawmakers' pet projects or special-interest spending.

Biden spoke Tuesday at the start of a meeting of President-elect Barack Obama's top economic staff.

The goal has been for the incoming White House and the Democratic-controlled Congress to devise the broad outlines of a plan for lawmakers to consider in early January.

Biden says details are still being worked out, including the amount of spending the measure will involve. It's expected to range between $650 billion and $850 billion.
