Tom Coburn May Delay Tax Extenders Package

Progress on a broad tax extenders package could face a delay, with Sen. Tom Coburn seeking the support of his Finance Committee colleagues for 61 amendments.

A spokesman of the Oklahoma Republican said that whether a committee markup of the extensions goes forward Thursday would depend on whether Finance Chairman Max Baucus wants to allow progress on the Coburn amendments.

The Montana Democrat and Senators in both parties want to press ahead on separate legislation to extend and revive an assortment of specialized tax benefits ranging from deductions on home mortgages and state and local sales taxes to incentives for users of public transportation systems.

1. The only part of this I understand is that Coburn is involved, which means it stinks.
