ABSTRACT
The article states that the U.S. House unanimously approved a compromise hurricane tax relief bill and sent it to U.S. President George W. Bush for his signature. The legislation--a House bill that was amended and then approved by the U.S. Senate--contains expanded private-activity and tax-credit bonding capacity for Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. It was initially unclear whether the U.S. Congress would be able to finalize the bill, sponsored by Representative Jim McCrery, Republican-Louisiana.
