U.S. Senate vote on fiscal deal possible around 6 p.m.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate could vote at around 6 p.m. EDT on legislation that would urgently raise government borrowing authority and reopen shuttered government agencies, according to a senior Senate aide.
If the measure passes, as expected, the House of Representatives likely would debate and pass the identical bill later on Wednesday, sending it to President Barack Obama for signing into law.
