How SC’s Tim Scott will decide what America’s tax bill looks like
U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-N. Charleston, was named Thursday to the conference committee negotiating the final version of the GOP’s tax reform plan. The proposal will be voted on by the House and Senate sometime before the end of the year, if congressional Republicans can keep to schedule.
Scott was one of 51 Republicans who voted to approve the Senate version of the tax plan. He now will have a say in how differences between that bill and the House-passed version are reconciled.
