U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, will support the Republican tax reform plan, she announced in a written statement Wednesday afternoon.
“After thoroughly reviewing the good work of the Finance Committee, I intend to support the reconciliation legislation that is now before the Senate,” she wrote in the statement provided to the Empire.
The statement followed a conversation between Murkowski and Capitol reporters. In that conversation, Murkowski said she was inclined to be a “yes” vote on the reform proposal drafted by the U.S. Senate.
“She intends to vote for the Senate’s tax reform bill,” Murkowski spokeswoman Karina Petersen told the Empire by phone.
