Recently introduced legislation extending several temporary bond provisions is not expected to be voted on by the House until September at the earliest, despite attempts from Democratic leaders to move quickly on the measure.

House lawmakers debated the Investing in American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act — HR 5893 — late Thursday, and the bill appeared to be advancing to a vote. However, the measure, introduced by Ways and Means Committee chairman Sander Levin, D-Mich., was eventually tabled and will be addressed later, according to ­congressional sources.
