Homebuyer tax credit closing deadline extension filibustered

A Senate bill that would have delayed the closing deadline for the homebuyer tax credit until September 30 has been filibustered. All 40 Republicans and one Democrat voted against allowing the bill to move to the floor for debate, effectively killing it. The June 30 deadline to close on contracts entered into before May 1 and still qualify for the homebuyer tax credit remains in force.
