Former Senator Byron Dorgan pens tax reform article for The Hill
March 26, 2017
Senator Dorgan (D-ND), now an Arent Fox Senior Policy Advisor, is a former member of the House Ways and Means committee.

Senator Dorgan gives details on how the last meaningful tax reform took place under President Ronald Reagan in 1986. He lays out two things that must happen. The first is a “truly bipartisan effort on the House Ways and Means Committee,” of which the Senator was a member in 1986. The second is to avoid provisions like the “border adjustment tax,” which in Senator Dorgan’s view is the type of major controversy that can kill tax reform efforts.
