Hatch Announces Hearing on Prospects, Challenges of Comprehensive Tax Reform
WASHINGTON – Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) will convene a hearing on Tuesday, July 18, 2017, to explore how Congress can reform the tax code to help promote economic growth, spur new job creation, and increase America’s competitiveness. The hearing, titled “Comprehensive Tax Reform: Prospects and Challenges,” will take place at 9 a.m. in Room 215 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
“As Congress and the administration work to examine the best ways to overhaul our nation’s broken tax code, it’s critical we gain the best possible insight from experts and stakeholders in the field,” Hatch said. “By bringing together former Treasury Department Assistant Secretaries for Tax Policy, our committee will gain a better understanding of not only the challenges we face with a comprehensive tax overhaul, but also the significant benefits meaningful reforms would bring to the American people. This hearing will give committee members the opportunity to explore how Congress can tackle some of the tough decisions that need to be made and act to implement a simpler, fairer tax system that will better serve American individuals, families and job creators across the country.”
The witnesses at Tuesday’s hearing will be:
- The Honorable Mark J. Mazur, Former Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, 2012– 2017, United States Department of the Treasury, Washington, DC;
- The Honorable Pamela F. Olson, Former Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, 2002– 2004, United States Department of the Treasury, Washington, DC;
