Sen. John Thune said Thursday there are a few members who still have concerns about parts of the tax bill.

“When we vote on it next week, we will have the support for it,” Mr. Thune, South Dakota Republican, said on Fox News. “But I’m very confident it’s going to pass, and it’s going to end up on the president’s desk hopefully by the end of week.”

Mr. Thune said there were a few senators who still had concerns about parts of the bill, but said that they are working toward a solution to those problems.

“Individual senators are trying to do their best to make this the best possible bill in the long run, and now we’re working with our House colleagues to accomplish that,” he explained.

The tax plan is now in conference where the House and Senate will each work out their differences into one bill that will be voted on and sent to President Trump. Republicans have promised they intend to keep to their Christmas deadline.
