WASHINGTON — Lawmakers are working behind the scenes to spur a potential vote as soon as next week on legislation that would ease capital standards for insurance companies.

The Senate Banking Committee is considering adding the legislation as an amendment to an unrelated bill to reauthorize the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act at a markup scheduled for Tuesday, though the amendment's inclusion has not yet been decided, according to several sources. It's also possible the measure could bypass regular order and pass on the chamber floor via unanimous consent as a standalone bill in coming weeks.
