House Majority Leader Eric Cantor recently announced his intention to bring Rep. Ron Paul's audit the Fed bill to a floor vote in July. According to the Library of Congress' THOMAS website, H.R. 459, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011, currently has 245 cosponsors. (edit: now 274!)
FreedomWorks has identified 30 (edit: now 12!) Republican House members who have not cosponsored the audit the Fed bill.
I urge you to contact the following representatives below and urge them to cosponsor H.R. 459 today.
*Speaker of the House. Rarely cosponsors bills.

Cosponsorship update: As of July 18th, H.R.459 had 273 cosponsors, or 63 percent of House Members.
Floor timing: We expect the House to vote on H.R.459 on July 24, 25, or 26, 2012.
Edit: It is interesting to note that Reps. Boehner, Brady, Cantor, Issa, King, Nunes, Reichert, and Ryan all cosponsored Ron Paul's identical bill (H.R. 1207) in 2009.
What are they waiting for?
