Marriage Tax Penalty Reduction Bill

NPR's Peter Kenyon reports that the marriage tax penalty reduction bill was passed in Congress. President Clinton is expected to veto it because of changes which add up to $50-Billion dollars over ten years. The bill is part of a Republican strategy to parcel out tax reduction votes one at a time over the presidential campaign season.
