The Senate package would put off budget cuts for two months and preserve Bush-era income tax cuts for individuals earning less than $400,000 or couples earning less than $450,000.

A statement from House leadership made no promises.

Sen. John Hoeven, R-North Dakota, was hopeful the House will follow suit.

“The vote was 89 to 8. Bipartisan vote. 89 votes,” he said. “I think it sends a strong message and I think it will be approved by the House.”  FULL ARTICLE WITH PDF OF BILL
