A vote to move to consideration of a financial regulatory reform bill probably won't happen this week, according to a senior Democratic aide.
Senate Democrats had hoped to file cloture and vote on the motion to proceed but by Wednesday but that's unlikely at this point, an aide said.
Most likely, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will file cloture on the bill before the end of the week.
Senate Democrats and Republicans are in negotiations to get a bill to the floor. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was on Capitol Hill on Monday talking to Republicans about how to move forward on the legislation.
