The Senate plans to vote Wednesday on a bill that would link popular tax cuts. These include the alternative minimum tax adjustment that would reduce taxes on 20 million middle-class families, tax relief for victims of natural disasters — and the renewable energy credits passed by the two houses, in separate bills, on Sept. 23 and 26.
