With greater dissention than in the Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the fiscal cliff compromise bill last night.  Despite considerable debate among House members about a lack of spending cuts, the bill retains a provision fixing the 9% credit rate for Low Income Housing Tax Credit allocations made up to January 1, 2014, according to analysis by the Housing Advisory Group.  

The compromise bill also extends the New Markets Tax Credit for two years.
