Potential U.S. fiscal cliff deal emerges in Senate - sources

WASHINGTON, Dec 31 - U.S. Senate Republicans on Monday appeared to be coalescing around a potential solution to the “fiscal cliff” crisis with a plan that would continue expiring tax cuts for household incomes of up to $450,000, congressional sources said on Monday.

“I think a majority of our caucus will go along with it,” a senior Senate Republican aide told Reuters.

Senate Democrats had not yet expressed positions on the emerging deal.
