Tax Bill Expected a Week After House Budget Vote, Meadows SaysBy
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said Monday he’s been promised the Ways and Means Committee will release the Republican tax plan about seven days after this Thursday’s scheduled House vote on a budget resolution.
“I don’t want to give any finite numbers, but I fully expect us voting on this by the middle to third week" of November, said Meadows. “The only way that happens is if you get the legislative text out soon after this week.”
House Republicans plan to accelerate the timeline to release the bill text and speed it through the legislative process. Meadows of North Carolina said he’s “hopeful we’re going to have a Ways and Means markup next week or the following week.”
Meadows said there’s more pressure for his conservative group to “negotiate a little bit more generously” following Congress’s failed attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
