House approves Iran resolution, flood insurance extension

And in a 402-18 vote, the House approved H.R. 5740, which would extend the federal flood insurance program for another 30 days. The House is hoping this extension would give the Senate more time to pass its own flood insurance bill.

The Senate is working on some way to move ahead with a bill before the National Flood Insurance Program expires at the end of May. The House has already passed a bipartisan bill extending the program for five years.
