The House Ways and Means Republicans reported yesterday that the push for comprehensive tax reform has received a significant boost. Specifically, it was confirmed today that House Speaker John Boehner is holding H.R. 1 for a comprehensive tax bill as a gesture meant to signify the importance tax reform holds for House Republicans.

They also reported that in separate events yesterday, both Speaker Boehner and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp spoke about the benefits of tax reform.  Speaker Boehner said tax reform is one of his highest priorities and Chairman Camp reiterated his goal of having the committee act on a bill this year.
