Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., did not commit to firm timetables Tuesday, but said he “hoped” the Senate would not leave for the August recess before addressing President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency funding request.

Reid also defended the Senate’s work to address the Highway Trust Fund and the Department of Veterans Affairs, while throwing his support behind the Export-Import Bank reauthorization.
