The Senate's delay in voting on the financial-regulation overhaul until after the July 4 recess could give the bill's opponents time to influence undecided lawmakers. Meanwhile, Democratic leaders are courting a trio of Republican senators who voted for a previous version of the legislation. Rep.

The House approved the bill Wednesday.
