Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he plans to move toward a final vote on a bill that would overhaul financial regulation by the end of the week after Democrats secured the 60 votes needed. Approval by the Senate would mean the bill would be sent to President Barack Obama for his signature. Obama said the bill would help to prevent a repeat of the financial crisis. "I urge the Senate to act quickly so I can sign it into law next week," Obama said.
