The National Flood Insurance Program, which was slated to expire on Friday, has been extended through March 11.

The omnibus spending bill before the Senate would have extended the program through September, but supporters of the spending bill late Thursday were one vote of the 60 needed to block a filibuster on the bill.

The Senate is expected to take up the omnibus bill again on today.
