The Senate Banking Committee continued negotiations over the weekend on landmark legislation to overhaul the mortgage finance system, but it remains unclear when, or if, panel leaders will reschedule a key vote on the bill.

Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, the panel's top Republican, initially scheduled a committee vote April 29, but abruptly postponed it in a bid to win additional support. Discussions have been ongoing over the past week, but there is little concrete information about the status of the talks or when the vote might resume.
