Senate Bill Anticipated Later This Week; House Begins Markup of Their Tax Reform Legislation


The House Ways and Means Committee began marking up the GOP tax bill this afternoon, and the process is expected to continue until Thursday. The markup will start with opening statements and then amendments are expected to be introduced throughout the week by Chairman Kevin Brady.  With the floor open to Democrats, discussions and amendments are anticipated to focus on the repeal of deductions for state and local taxes, home mortgage and the adoption credit. Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch says he plans to release a bill for his committee to consider once the House Ways and Means Committee completes its work, which he hopes will be toward the end of this week.
