House Will Vote On Senate-Passed "Cliff" Bill

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON D.C. - Republicans are dropping their demands for additional spending cuts and will hold a House vote on whether to give final congressional approval to the Senate-approved compromise averting "fiscal cliff" tax increases and spending cuts.
    
The House vote was expected Tuesday evening.
    
A decision by the Republican-run House to amend the Senate-passed bill would have complicated prospects for final congressional passage of the measure. Senate Democratic aides have said the Democratic-led Senate, which overwhelmingly approved the compromise early Tuesday, would not return to vote on an amended version of the measure.
    
The measure would allow tax increases on the highest-earning Americans, but retain decade-old income tax cuts for everyone else.
