Levin takes time with extender bill

Ways and Means Chairman Sandy Levin (D-Mich.) on Wednesday said tax extender legislation that recently passed the Senate will not be voted on in the House until after the Easter recess. 

"We'll be working on it through the recess and possibly when we come back," he said. 

The Senate-passed bill extends several business and individual tax breaks that expired last year. It also provided pension relief that allows companies to delay funding requirements. Republicans say the relief is needed soon or companies bill be forced to shed jobs to meet funding requirements.
