WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate on Thursday delayed a vote on a bill to get tough with China over its currency practices until next week because of a dispute between Republicans and Democrats over the handling of amendments.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, proposed delaying the vote on the legislation to Tuesday night, instead of moving to a final vote on Thursday.

The motion was approved after an extended discussion in which both sides expressed frustration with Senate procedures.
