ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will collaborate on a new war-funding bill to begin conference talks quickly with the House. The goal of the bipartisan Senate supplemental is that no troop withdrawal dates will make it into the bill heading into conference. Reid adds that a deal may be near on a minimum-wage hike if it is considered a must pass before it became a casualty of the delayed supplemental tasks.
