U.S. Senate likely to vote Wednesday on fiscal deal: aide
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate is expected to vote later on Wednesday on legislation to increase the nation's borrowing limit and fund government agencies, a Senate Democratic leadership aide said.
The aide said the vote could come either late afternoon or early evening.
Once the Senate passes the measure, a vote by the House of Representatives could quickly follow on Wednesday.
