From Brady Dennis at the WaPo: Senate clears way to vote on financial reform

A final vote on the legislation could come later Thursday evening, congressional aides said. Party leaders were working to resolve a number of procedural hurdles, but it appeared that a series of votes could begin around 7:30 p.m.

"We're passing this bill tonight," said Jim Manley, spokesman to Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.). "We're finishing this tonight."
