Former Senator Byron Dorgan Quoted on Tax Reform in Morning Consult

Arent Fox senior policy advisor and former US Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) weighed in on the upcoming tax reform debate in the Morning Consult article, “White House Calling for Tax Reform Consideration.” 

The article reports that the White House and Members of the GOP are working on an “aggressive” timeline to begin the legislative process for reforming the US tax code soon after Congress returns from the summer recess. Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs, believes there can be bipartisan support for the tax reform in looking at the Democratic senators from states that went for President Donald Trump in 2016 who are up for re-election next year. Dorgan suggested that Republicans should bring their Democratic colleagues into the conversation to encourage more bipartisanship since most of the substantive engagement has happened within the GOP ranks. He added, “I don’t think real tax reform will be enacted if it’s only done by Republicans.” To read the article in full, click here
