Vote on highway bill delayed

According to “The Hill” website, Speaker John Boehner has delayed a vote on the $260 billion transportation bill …”a clear signal GOP leaders lack the votes to win approval of the package,” Keith Laing and Russell Berman reported in their story.
The League of American Bicyclists says, “We remain opposed to the overall bill, H.R. 7, because of its regressive attacks on transit, environmental protections, planning and bicycling.” In a post on their website, the league said it has written letters to, “…members and supporters in a few key House districts to ask for their help in getting the votes needed to pass the Petri/Johnson amendment.”
