How the Ways and Means Committee Views the Tax Question

Green, William R.
September 1923
Congressional Digest;Sep23, Vol. 2 Issue 12, p339
All revenue bills, when introduced in the U.S. house are referred to the Committee on the Ways and Means for consideration. So far as the Ways and Means Committee is concerned, the question in which the public is most concerned is whether a reduction in taxation will be made at the next session of the U.S. Congress. The question of whether there can be any reduction made in taxation depends on the amount of the appropriations. It is likely that tax legislation will be reported by the Ways and Means Committee, it is not likely that the U.S. congress will make any change in the policy of present law.
