Democrats countered that Cantor purposefully delayed the House version of the STOCK Act, even though it has more than 200 co-sponsors. The bill quickly gained sponsors after a mid-November report on "60 Minutes" alleging that several members — including Bachus — have profited from non-public information.

The Senate will vote at 5:30 p.m. on a motion to involve cloture on the Senate version of the bill, which was introduced last week by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.).

The House is out today, and returns Tuesday at noon.
