Next week: House, Senate move on tax reform

(Worthy News) – House and Senate Republicans will take up separate tax reform proposals next week as they race to complete legislation by the end of the year.

The Senate kicks off its tax reform effort on Monday when it begins marking up the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which would provide $1.5 trillion in tax savings by cutting individual, small business and corporate tax rates.
