As Highway Bill Inches Forward, House-Senate Collision Looms

The Senate is moving closer to approving a bill that includes an Ex-Im Bank renewal, which House GOP leaders strongly oppose.

WASHINGTON - JULY 30: U.S. Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) (R) and Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) (L) listen to a question during a news conference on the debt ceiling negotiation July 30, 2011 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. McConnell told the press that he had talked to President Barack Obama and he's confident that an agreement can be reached very soon. The House rejected Reid's proposed debt ceiling bill one day after the Senate rejected U.S. Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner's (R-OH) plan. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)
