On the Radar: What's happening Tuesday

Secretary of State Clinton will lead a high level U.S. delegation to Mexico City.

Here's a look at some of tomorrow's news events:

Health care signing

President Barack Obama plans to sign the health care bill during a White House ceremony.  At that point, the U.S. Senate can begin dealing with the process of reconciling its version of the bill with one passed late Sunday by the House of Representatives.

U.S. officials to Mexico 

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and other top U.S. officials will be in Mexico City to discuss the ongoing war on drugs.  It will be a major show of solidarity with the Mexican government since the killings of a U.S. consulate worker and her husband who was also an American.  They were gunned down earlier this month in Ciudad Juarez in front of their 1-year-old child.

University of Alabama killings

Dr. Amy Bishop  is scheduled to be in court to face charges linked to last month's deadly shooting at the University of Alabama-Huntsville.  The former biology professor is charged with one count of capital murder and three counts of attempted murder after allegedly shooting six colleagues, three fatally, on Feb 12.
