Tax Reform and the Legislative Process

Monday, October 30, 2017

The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law hosted Alex Reid, Morgan Lewis partner, along with Harold Hancock, of McGuire Woods, in an interactive lecture as part of their Law & Public Policy Speaker Series. The session was titled ‘Tax Reform and the Legislative Process’, moderated by Professor Roger Colinvaux, director of the Law and Public Policy Program at CUA Law.

Discussion topics ranged from the current state of play in tax reform, the difference between the current tax reform effort and the 2014 Camp tax reform framework, the drafting, amendment, and markup process, and the correlation between tax policy and the public interest.

The event was conducted in roundtable style, where students had the opportunity to actively participate in the conversation.
