The U.S. Senate voted to proceed with debate on the Republican tax bill, 52 to 48, in a party line vote, the New York Times reports.
Axios: “Republican leadership wants to pass the bill by the end of the week. There will be up to 20 hours of debate and votes on a series of amendments prior to the final vote. The House has already passed a different tax bill and, should the Senate pass its bill, they will have to agree on a compromise package.”
