The instructions contained in the motion seek to require the bill to be reported back to the House with an amendment to strike section 2 of the bill and replace it with a new section prohibiting an increase in the deficit or a delay or weakening of efforts to adopt a permanent extension of the election to deduct State and local sales taxes so long as such an extension is accomplished in a fiscally responsible manner. The amendment also adds a section to extend the deduction of state and local general sales tax for one year. Subsequently, the point of order was withdrawn.
