SALT LAKE CITY -- The vote on Governor Huntsman's nomination for the ambassadorship of China has been delayed.

A committee staffer told the Deseret News it's because the paperwork is still being compiled.

The vote by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is now expected to take place either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

It will then move on to the full Senate for confirmation. Huntsman is expected to be confirmed before the session adjourns on Aug. 7.
