Reid Aiming For Monday Vote on Bailout

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced on the Senate floor late Friday that congressional negotiators are aiming for an early Monday morning final vote on a Wall Street bailout bill, assuming agreement on the $700 billion package could be reached this weekend.

While those talks continue, Reid said the Senate will vote at 10 a.m. Saturday on a motion to proceed to a continuing resolution to fund the government, with a 30-hour post-debate period possibly to follow before a final vote on the stopgap funding measure
