Senate President Harry Reid (D-NV) temporarily suspended debate over the mandatory collective bargaining bill after acrimonious and partisan disagreements over Senate procedures affecting this bill and others erupted on the Senate floor. 

At Sen. Reid's request, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA), a key supporter of the bill, and Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), a key opponent, are attempting to work out a compromise that would allow debate to continue.  If Enzi and Kennedy are able to work out an agreement, debate on the bill is expected to resume.
