Based on a comment made by Reid a couple hours ago, we hope to see an agreement in the next 24 hours. (Once some key senators are able to craft this agreement, the Senate should be able to move passed the current obstructions and onto the next step in the reauthorization process.) We expect to know more tomorrow, and will let you know when we do.
Reid’s comments from a 2pm press conference today:
“The global AIDS bill, the PEPFAR — I spoke to Senator Biden before lunch today. He asked me if I could wait for another 24 hours before I brought a unanimous consent request to pass this. He said almost all the problems are worked out.
I hope that’s the case. It’s something we need to do. It is important.
The president said he wants it. Now we’ve got to get folks on the other side of the aisle, the Republicans, to join with the president on this.”
