Richard Shelby (R-Ala.). On Dec. 24, Dodd and Shelby said they were “on track” to make a deal in January. However, Dodd said negotiations can be tricky, and anything could happen in five minutes to change things. A new draft of the bill is expected to be dropped after the Senate comes back from recess Jan. 19. Dodd initially intended to make a deal on the legislation with Shelby last summer ...
