The article reports that the U.S. Department of the Treasury has announced that it has postponed its weekly four-week bill auction, scheduled for November 16, 2004 until further notice, to help prevent the department from reaching the statutory debt limit. The U.S. Congress reconvened on November 15, 2004 and is expected to address the debt limit, now at $7.4 trillion. The department had previously announced that it would begin suspending the four-week auctions this week until the debt limit issue was resolved.
