AP Sources: House leaders accept Senate tax terms

WASHINGTON (AP) - GOP aides say House Republican leaders have
agreed to a two-month extension of Social Security payroll tax cuts
and federal unemployment benefits.

The move reflects a retreat by House Republicans and appears to
all but assure 160 million workers aren't hit by a 2 percentage
point increase in the payroll tax on Jan. 1.

House leaders were to brief rank-and-file lawmakers on the
proposal on a conference call later Thursday.
