Congress: Moving forward

The Washington Post: "Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) plans to move forward Monday with an expansive bill to overhaul the nation's financial regulatory system, setting up a possible showdown between Republicans and Democrats if efforts at a compromise fall short. As President Obama spoke Thursday in New York about the "essential" need for the landmark legislation, Reid set in motion the Senate procedures necessary to hold a crucial test vote late Monday afternoon." 

"Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Chairman Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) appears to be fighting an uphill battle to get her piece of the financial regulatory reform bill into the larger package before it hits the floor, possibly next week," Roll Call writes.
