President Obama signs two-month extension into law

President Obama signed the two-month payroll tax/Medicare extension into law after the House of Representatives officially passed the Senate extension bill Friday. The measure, almost identical to a Senate-passed resolution, extends vital rural provisions for two months while congressional leaders work out a compromise for a year-long measure. The Senate and House conference committees are expected to begin their work on funding the full-year tax cut/Medicare extensions after the New Year.
