Boehner Will Accept Senate Fiscal Deal, Brady Says

Oct. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Rep. Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, discusses House Speaker John Boehner’s comments that he would bring up a vote in the House if the Senate reaches an agreement to end the debt ceiling debate. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Market Makers.”

House Speaker John Boehner will allow a vote on a Senate agreement to end the government shutdown and extend U.S. borrowing authority, said Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, a senior House Republican.

“The speaker will bring that agreement to the House floor in a very timely manner,” Brady said on Bloomberg Television today. He said he thinks the measure would pass.

House leaders haven’t decided whether they will vote before the Senate, said a Republican aide who spoke on conditions of anonymity. For procedural reasons, if the House goes first, the bill could reach President Barack Obama’s desk more quickly.
