“The clock is ticking for Republicans to notch a big legislative win this year. So policymakers in the Senate, House and White House have hit the ground running on tax reform. Tax negotiators have been in constant contact, the President is pursuing bipartisanship, and the leaders of both tax writing committees are soliciting input from members – one by retreat and the other by hearing.
“Last week, the “Big 6” tax negotiators – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn – met with President Trump to discuss tax reform and the White House reports the negotiators have come to consensus on many outstanding issues.” [Alliance for Charitable Reform]
