Senate Voting Now Before Biden Resigns At 5 P.M. Today

The U.S. Senate is voting now on whether to release the second $350 billion of the $700 billion federal government bailout/rescue before 5 p.m. today because that's when Sen. Joe Biden (D-N.Y.) is set to resign to become solely Vice-president-elect Biden.

Democrats either believe they need Biden's vote to defeat Republican-led opposition to releasing the money or they just want to play it safe.
