Reporter Kitty Felde for the California Report:

House GOP leaders have postponed a vote on the $260 billion transportation bill until after the Presidents Day holiday.

Congresswoman Lois Capps of Santa Barbara tried to push through an amendment to exclude drilling off the California coast — but it was voted down yesterday. Reporter: Kitty Felde
