Democratic leaders pushing US bailout to test vote

Democratic leaders pushing US bailout to test vote

Leaders in the House of Representatives have scheduled a test vote on a bill to provide U.S. government assistance to the financially ailing auto industry.
The Democratic leadership is sufficiently confident of the prospects that such a bill could successfully be brought to the floor that they scheduled a procedural vote for later Wednesday.
The White House and the Democratic-run Congress have come to an accommodation on the broad outlines of such a rescue package, although some differences remain over the fine print.
White House deputy chief of staff Joel Kaplan is scheduled to brief reporters at the White House, and a final House vote looms by day's end.
