Senate to Vote Saturday Morning

The Senate will vote at 9:30 a.m. Saturday on a procedural motion to end debate on the $446.8 billion omnibus spending package, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced Friday. Reid hoped to avoid a weekend session, but Republicans have not agreed to yield back time to proceed to a vote on the spending measure. If the Saturday cloture motion passes as expected, the Senate will return Sunday to vote on final passage on the omnibus. The spending package approved by the House earlier in the week includes six appropriations bills. The Senate is expected to return to the health care reform bill once it dispenses with the omnibus.
