Bank bill clears House, Senate looms

The House approved sweeping Wall Street reforms Wednesday, setting the stage for a final showdown in the Senate.

The vote was 237 to 192, largely along party lines.

In the Senate, an extraordinary 11th-hour maneuver by Democrats to kill a controversial bank fee opposed by key Republican senators got mixed results. And with the legislations final fate uncertain, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced he wont take it up until after next weeks July 4th recess.

His decision buys Democrats time to wait for a Democratic replacement to fill the seat left vacant by the death Monday of Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) and to continue courting several fence-sitting Republicans.

2. Harry's being prudent.. probably not sure he has the votes..
with Brown, Snowe and Collins all not yet declaring support, Harry is doing the right thing.
