House expected to vote on small-business bill next week

Next week, the House is expected to take up the small-business bill passed Thursday by the Senate. 

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said the first votes of the week won't take place until 6 p.m. Wednesday. 

Hoyer said Democrats are discussing the measure, which provides $12 billion in tax incentives and a $30 billion lending fund. 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has said she expects the House to approve the Senate-passed measure and send the long-delayed bill to President Obama for his signature.
