Hill Report: Senate Puts FMAP Back Into Tax Extender Bill

Marketwatch reported today that the US Senate has added the FMAP/Medicaid six month extension back into the tax extender bill. 
Looks like there will be a Senate vote next week and some media outlets are saying House has the votes to pass it.
This may be very welcomed news for the thirty states that are currently holding their breath as they are working on their budgets.
North Carolina currently is looking at a 500 million dollar deficit if the FMAP extension fails to pass Congress.
