Bill Nelson brings top Democrat on Senate Finance Committee to Tampa for tax bill discussion

Sen. Bill Nelson and the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, Ron Wyden of Oregon, will hold a discussion on the GOP tax bill in Tampa on Monday.

They will meet with local business leaders including Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and representatives from six area chamber of commerce organizations.

Democrats have assaulted the tax plan as rushed and favoring corporations and the wealthy. On Thursday, Finance Committee members Nelson and Wyden voted against advancing the plan.

The 3:15 p.m. event will be held at the Children's Board of Hillsborough County, 1002 East Palm Avenue.
