The senate voted 53-33 to pass H.R. 2029, the Omnibus appropriations and tax extenders bill and sent the bill to the President for his signature. The bill contains a five-year retroactive extension of WOTC and the VOW to Hire Heroes Act tax credits for hiring veterans. The President has said he will sign the bill. He has until midnight December 22 to do so because government funding runs out at that time.
