Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) poured cold water on the Trump administration’s goal of completing tax reform by the August recess.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said late last month that the administration wants to wrap up a long-held GOP goal of overhauling the tax code, reports The Hill.
The Senate is tentatively scheduled to leave town by July 31st and return during the first week of September.
Pressed about when he thought lawmakers would be able to complete tax reform, the Senate’s top Republican demurred.
“It is complicated.” McConnell said.
Republicans are expected to use reconciliation to approve tax reform, meaning they would be able to clear the bill through the upper chamber with only GOP support.
