Reid: No Votes This Weekend

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday that he doesn’t expect the Senate to work over the weekend.“Probably not,— Reid said when asked if he would schedule votes for Saturday or Sunday. Democratic leaders had warned that they might have to hold weekend votes to clear a legislative backlog that includes a handful of appropriations bills and dozens of Obama administration nominees. The Senate is scheduled to adjourn Nov. 11-13 for Veterans Day recess and is expected to begin considering a massive health care reform bill soon after returning. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has scheduled a Saturday evening vote on health care legislation, and the chamber is also slated to break next week for Veterans Day.
