House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., has introduced legislation to extend expiring tax provisions and provide tax incentives for renewable energy sources and disaster relief that contains fewer bond provisions than similar legislation approved by the Senate Tuesday.

Rangel's proposals appear in three separate bills, one of which would provide a one-year "patch" to the alternative minimum tax that is not offset by revenue-raising provisions - a reversal of his previous vow to pay for the patch, bringing him in line with the AMT measure approved by the Senate. Another bill contains disaster relief measures and a third includes energy and tax extender provisions.
