House could vote Wednesday on Ex-imbank deal: aide

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House of Representatives is expected to vote on Wednesday on a bipartisan deal to renew the U.S. Export-Import Bank for three years, a House leadership aide said on Monday.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Virginia Republican, and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, reached the deal on Friday, signaling a likely end to months of uncertainty over the future of the government bank.
