Freshman 1st District GOP Rep. Raul Labrador's vote is
among a handful that will decide today's expected tally on House Speaker John Boehner's debt and deficit reduction bill, according to The Hill.
"He's leaning no but he's still undecided at the moment," said Labrador spokesman Phil Hardy Thursday morning. The vote is expected to begin about 3:45 p.m. Mountain Time.
Idaho's 2nd District GOP Rep. Mike Simpson, a subcommittee chairman and close ally of Boehner, is expected to vote for the bill.
Labrador is among a group of 39 House Republicans who pledged to oppose any bill that raises the debt ceiling unless it includes major cuts, spending caps and a balanced budget amendment. Boehner's bill doesn't include a balanced budget amendment.
The Hill says 19 of the 39 have said they will oppose or likely oppose Boehner's bill. Six have said they will back the measure, or are leaning yes.
That leaves the 14 undecideds, including Labrador, who are subject to heavy pressure to support Boehner. Labrador is one of four in the undecided group who broke with GOP leadership on a continuing resolution bill in March and the final fiscal 2011 budget deal.
