Treasury Chief: Good Talks on Taxes

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (mih-NOO'-shin) says he's been having "very good discussions" with Republican senators who oppose or have concerns about tax-cut legislation expected to be voted on after Thanksgiving.

Mnuchin tells "Fox News Sunday" that he wants to make sure the lawmakers' views are incorporated before the Senate vote.

Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin opposes the measure, saying it doesn't cut business taxes enough for partnerships and corporations. Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Susan Collins of Maine also have reservations about the bill, and Mnuchin says he's met with them as well.

House Republicans passed their tax-cut bill last week.

President Donald Trump has said he wants to sign legislation cutting taxes for corporations and individuals into law before the end of the year.
