There were 27 amendments filed in the Senate to the tax deal reached between the White House and Congressional Republicans.  It’s not clear if any of them will get a vote.

Senators of both parties have introduced everything from a completely new bill, to expansion and extension of certain tax breaks and modifications of individual provisions.

You can look at the list here:

SA 4775 Stabenow, et al – Expansion of Qualifying Advanced Energy Project Credit

SA 4776 Cantwell/Murray – EXTENSION AND EXPANSION OF NEW CLEAN RENEWABLE ENERGY BONDS

SA 4777 Cantwell – TIMBER REIT MODERNIZATION

SA 4778 Cantwell – RENEWAL COMMUNITY TAX INCENTIVES

SA 4799 Collins ME- strikes provision on Wood stoves

SA 4800 Coons – changes effective date on some bond related provisions

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) still hopes to get a vote on at least one of his plans to cut billions in spending in order to offset the cost of some of the underlying provisions in this tax deal.

But he may get elbowed aside by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

As for a final vote in the Senate on the tax deal, no time has been set as yet at this writing.
