Cantor delays vote on flood insurance

A vote in the House of Representatives on a bill to hold down increases in flood insurance premiums now is expected next week, Republican House Speaker John Boehner told reporters in Washington on Wednesday. Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., originally scheduled the vote for Wednesday or Thursday this week. Boehner didn’t spell out why the legislation was delayed. But there are indications that he doesn’t have the votes he needs to get it passed.
