WASHINGTON (AP) -- A congressional analysis says that President Barack Obama's economic stimulus plan would flow into the economy a little more slowly than he predicted.

The study says almost two-thirds of the $816 billion would hit the economy over the next year and a half. That would fall short of the 75 percent the Obama administration promised would be spent by October 2010, though that's faster than what a previous study by the Congressional Budget Office had suggested.

The new estimate applies to the House version of the measure slated for a floor vote on Wednesday.
