Committee member Rep. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) says the delay will provide extra time to work with Democrats in an effort to keep the legislation “totally bipartisan”, according to BNA Pension & Benefits Reporter.
Portman is co-sponsor of H.R. 1102, which provided many of the pension provisions in H.R. 3081. H.R. 3081 was approved by the House in March, including $45.7 billion in tax cuts and a minimum wage increase.
Although a date hasn’t been set, a House source told BNA that a July 14 markup was being considered.
