Senate Republicans will vote on the tax reform bill next week and will not delay consideration until Senator-elect Doug Jones is seated in the coming weeks.

Republicans will stick to their plan to clear tax reform bill before adjourning at the end of next week, according to a Capitol Hill source with knowledge of the plan.

House and Senate lawmakers from both parties who are participating in a conference on the tax bill will meet at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday with President Trump to discuss the legislation, which cuts corporate and individual tax breaks, ends popular deductions, and repeals the Obamacare mandate.

Democrats, who oppose the tax bill, are calling on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to delay the vote in order to wait for Jones to take his seat in the Senate. Jones, a Democrat, defeated Republican Roy Moore on Tuesday in Alabama’s Senate election.
