Pryor Drops Opposition to Debate on Flood Bill

June 26, 2012

Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., on Tuesday said he was no longer opposing Senate debate on legislation to reform the National Flood Insurance Program and was instead focused on trying to get his amendment adopted on the floor.

It remains unclear whether the Senate will complete the bill, as had been planned this week, particularly given more pressing deadlines on other issues, including student loan legislation and transportation reauthorization. But Pyror said in an interview he was no longer opposed to moving forward on the flood bill.

"I'm not trying to slow this down. We need to get flood insurance passed but we need to get it done in the right way," he said. "I'm going to let the bill managers and the leaders work out all the procedure."
