Flood insurance bill won't be considered on House floor

WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Republican leaders in the U.S. House said Wednesday that the vote on a flood insurance bill will be delayed until next week.

Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., told Republicans in a private meeting he would work with Democrats to alter the bill to ease some of their concerns, Roll Call reported.

The bill was expected to be considered Thursday under suspension of the rules, meaning it would need a two-thirds majority vote to pass.

Members who attended the GOP meeting said they didn't think the bill had enough support to clear the hurdle, the newspaper reported.
