Today is the last day that Congress can reach a deal on a transportation bill in order for there to be enough time to complete it before funds runs out this weekend, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). “We have to have an agreement by tomorrow,” Reid said Tuesday. “Otherwise, we can’t get the bill done.” To beat the deadline, both the House and the Senate must approve a bill and send it to President Obama’s desk. House Republicans have been stalling the process by pushing to include a mandate in the bill forcing the Obama administration to approve the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.
