Harry Reid, D-NV

Mr. REID. Before my friend leaves, if I could just say this. I think we could probably accomplish what we both should want by saying: OK, let's vote at a reasonable time Wednesday morning on this jobs bill, but in the meantime--in the meantime, all day tomorrow--let's work on the FAA bill. That way we would accomplish two very important things.

I would hope my friend would consider that. That way we could not only have a time certain where we are going to pass this bill--the HIRE bill--but we could also work on FAA. We have Senators waiting to do work on the FAA bill.
