A bipartisan negotiating panel is today expected to sign a deal to extend the payroll tax cut through this year, clearing the way for the House to vote on the measure, possibly this week. Democrats and Republicans have also agreed to cut the maximum number of weeks to collect unemployment benefits from 99 to 73 by the end of 2012.
