WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee of the US House of Representatives, Kevin Brady, said his goal is to pass a tax reform bill in his committee this spring.

Brady told Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo” show that his committee had been working on tax reform in parallel with the failed push for health care reform.

“We have never stopped working,” Brady said. “We will continue to make improvements. We are planning to move this into the Ways and Means committee in the spring … and we have this ready for the Senate to do as well.”

Brady said his goal is for the House bill to serve as a model for Trump‘s tax reform bill rather than to negotiate between competing plans from the U.S. Treasury Department and the White House.
