The Florida Senate was set to vote on delaying flood insurance hikes, but the vote was delayed to next week.

Sponsors of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act say they are confident they will have the 60 votes necessary to move the measure to a vote.

Senator Bill Nelson has been a big supporter of the bill.

10 News asked Senator Rubio about it, and just before 8 p.m. tonight, his office sent a statement:

"It's an encouraging proposal and Senator Rubio still hopes to make significant improvements to this legislation to add further protections and ensure it doesn't create longer term problems."

The bill's prospects in the House are still uncertain.
