House votes to set firm deadline for SEC regulations

Some Republicans blamed the SEC for delaying the rules needed to implement that change. But few Democrats opposed the bill, and it easily passed in a 416-6 vote.

Members also passed two other bills on Wednesday evening:

— H.R. 767, which would rename a energy pilot project in Montana. Passed 415-1.

— H.R. 384, which would establish an advocate for homeless veterans at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Passed 420-3.
