Washington, D.C. (NNCNOW.com) - There will be a vote Tuesday night in the house on legislation that was passed in the senate to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.

Rules committee Chairman David Preier predicts the house will approve the measure with bipartisan support, but he declined to say how many republicans will back it.

The proposal would allow taxes to increase on individual income over $400,000 dollars and household income over $450,000 dollars, while delaying a series of spending cuts for two months.
