SPOKANE, Wash. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R – Wash.) plans to hold a town hall event to talk about the GOP overhaul of the tax code that is expected to pass this week.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the bill Tuesday morning in a 227-203 vote, split mostly along party lines, with 12 Republicans joining Democrats in opposing the bill. News broke Tuesday afternoon that the House would have to re-vote on Wednesday after Democrats said three provisions in the legislation violate Senate rules.
The measure is expected to pass the Senate with a narrow GOP majority when it does make it there. Initially, the Senate was slated to vote on the measure Tuesday night.
McMorris Rodgers, a senior Republican in the House and the representative for Eastern Washington, announced her plans to hold a telephone town hall to talk about the tax cuts and “what it will mean for families in Eastern Washington.”
The event will start at 6 p.m. PT on Tuesday. To listen in, you can call 877-229-8493 and input the code 117087 or follow this link: https://video.teleforumonline.com/video/streaming.php?client=17087
