According to U.S. Representative Kathy Castor, House Speaker John Boehner is to blame, saying he's holding up the vote that could bring relief to not just thousands of Tampa Bay area families, but families all across the country.

"I don't think Speaker Boehner can continue to ignore businesses, realtors, homeowners, and property owners all across the country. We're going to continue to demand action, and I think we'll get there, but it shouldn't be this hard."

The U.S. Senate has already passed a bill to delay the flood insurance rate hikes, but the house has since created a revised one.

They are scheduled to vote on it next week.
