Reid Threatens Weekend Session

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday afternoon said the Senate could be in session this weekend to advance legislation that would give the Detroit automakers an emergency, multibillion-dollar loan.

“We’re going to have a vote on this sometime. We can either have it sooner or we can have it later, but everyone should understand there will be no stalling us from not doing this,” Reid said. “We are going to complete this legislation. That may mean … we have to work this weekend.”

Passage of an auto aid package has been delayed in part by ongoing negotiations between Congressional leaders and the White House. At least one GOP Senator, John Ensign (Nev.), has vowed to place a hold on the bill without significant changes.
