State Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport), a co-sponsor of the Senate legislation, said the extension will provide more flexibility for federal workers struggling to balance between paying their kids' tuition and their mortgage. 

"It's something that gives them a tool, so as they are figuring out which bill to pay, they don't have to worry about paying their property taxes," Gaughran said.
