He told the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/MsHQTd) on Monday that his plan will both cut entitlement spending and raise more money.
Corker said he intends to keep his "soup to nuts" plan private until after the presidential election is settled but he's submitted a draft for review by congressional budget staff. The Chattanooga Republican said he thinks his proposal can provide a path to compromise between Republicans who want to cut spending and Democrats who want to raise taxes.
Corker is seeking re-election but doesn't face a strong challenge in the Aug. 2 primary or Nov. 6 general election.

Court rules against man who lost handgun permit
May 24, 2013 16:15 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Appeals Court has ruled against a man who claimed state law regulating the carrying of firearms was unconstitutional.
Leonard Embody filed suit in 2010 after state officials took away his carry permit, finding a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public."
The revocation came after Embody was detained by Belle Meade police in 2010 while walking with a .44 caliber black powder revolver in his hand. He was detained in 2009 while walking in Radnor Lake State Park with an AK-47-style pistol. There have been at least three similar incidents, although Embody was never charged with a crime.
Embody claimed in court the Second Amendment gave him a right to carry firearms.
The Appeals Court disagreed, ruling that the right to bear arms is not unrestricted.
