After a late night flurry of re-drafting, the Senate voted 51-49 to pass its tax reform bill, with the support of all Republican Senators other than Senator Bob Corker (R-TN).
The Senate Bill as reported to the floor was replaced by a Manager’s Amendment shortly before the final vote occurred. You can view the text of the Manager’s Amendment (with hand-written adjustments here). The final bill text has not been released yet, but we will update the blog when it is. Stay tuned early next week for an updated comparison grid between the House and Senate bills as well.
From here, the Senate and House bills head to conference committee to resolve the differences between the two bills. The House Republican leadership has scheduled a vote for Monday at 6:30 pm to get the go ahead to proceed to conference with the Senate on the tax bill.
