Senate cloture vote on jobs bill likely Monday

The Senate on Monday is expected to limit debate on the $17 billion jobs bill that has bounced between chambers for roughly a month. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) filed cloture on the measure last night.

The bill's centerpiece provision, a tax credit for businesses taking on new hires, has gotten plenty of scrutiny from members in both chambers who fear the measure won't do much to stimulate hiring.

Monday's vote postpones action on the FAA modernization bill that levies tax increases on a number of areas within aviation.
