via U.S. House OKs tax overhaul, but stumbles on details to prompt re-vote – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Dec 19 (Reuters) – Republicans in the U.S. Congress hit a last-minute snag on Tuesday in their drive to approve the biggest tax code rewrite in 30 years, requiring another vote on Wednesday and delaying what would be their first major legislative win under President Donald Trump.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed the tax package on Tuesday afternoon, sending the bill to the Senate, where a staff official ruled that three provisions of the House bill did not comply with the Senate’s complex rules, said Independent Senator Bernie Sanders.
