WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Legislation to increase U.S. borrowing authority and avoid a debt default is likely to be debated in the Senate on Wednesday, a senior Democratic aide said on Tuesday.

The House of Representatives is attempting to pass the measure later on Tuesday, leaving it for the Senate to then pass and send the one-year extension of borrowing authority to President Barack Obama for signing into law.
