House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) avoided stripping out Export-Import Bank renewal provisions from the Senate-passed highway bill -- instead opting to subject it to an open amendment process on the House floor -- out of deference to the majority of the House GOP who support renewing the bank, a Ryan spokesman signaled Tuesday (Nov. 3).
