The article reports on a bill containing tax conciliation provisions, such as extensions of the qualified zone academy bond program and the alternative deduction for state and local sales taxes, that will unlikely be approved if it's included in pension reform legislation in the U.S. in June 2006. Slow negotiations between the two chambers has resulted to delays in the bill and the main tax reconciliation bill.
