Senate Budget Committee Votes to Approve Senate Tax Bill

On November 28, the Senate Budget Committee voted 12 to 11 to approve the Senate tax reform bill. Despite concerns that Republican Senators Bob Corker (Tenn.) and Ron Johnson (Wis.) might vote against the bill, every Republican on the Committee, including Senators Corker and Johnson, voted to approve the bill, while each Democrat voted against the bill.

The bill is expected to be brought to the Senate floor as early as tomorrow, November 29. Although Republican Senators who have voiced concerns about the bill appear to be softening their stance, it remains to be seen whether Senate Republican leadership will be able to raise the requisite 50 votes to pass the bill.
