Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013—Motion to Proceedby Senator Harry Reid
Posted on 2014-01-15
REID. I move to proceed to Calendar No. 266.
The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. The clerk will report.
The legislative clerk read as follows: Motion to proceed to Calendar No. 266, S. 1846, a bill to delay the implementation of certain provisions of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012, and for other purposes.
Mr. REID. Mr. President, on this issue we have a bipartisan coalition that badly wants to get this done. So we are going to do everything we can to move forward. At this stage the Republicans have not cleared the proposed consent agreement. I have indicated to the Republican leader that later today I would ask that. But also, to stopgap, we have started a rule XIV procedure which in just a minute I will move to, and we will have a second reading so that, if we can't work anything out on the consent agreement, we will tee this up so this will be the first vote we have when we get back after our recess.
