The House is expected to pass the Senate's version of a small-business bill and send the legislation to President Obama before the next recess.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the San Francisco Chronicle Tuesday that despite differences between the chambers' bills, "we may have to convince some of our House members to work out the differences in subsequent legislation. It's important to get this money out as quickly as possible."
The Senate voted to move forward on a long-stalled bill that will provide $12 billion in tax incentives and a $30 billion lending fund to spur loans from community banks to small businesses.
The Senate is expected to complete the bill by week's end and the House will probably take up the legislation sometime next week.
The House could adjourn by Sept. 30 for the November elections.
