Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner leaves after a media availability on Feb. 25, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington.

The best seat in the House belongs to a tax-code overhaul.

House Speaker John Boehner is reserving the bill number HR 1 for the rewrite of the tax code, according to Kevin Smith, a spokesman for the Ohio Republican.

It’s a sign of Republicans’ commitment to the issue.

In the last Congress, first-bill honors went to Republican attempts to cut discretionary spending.

In 2009, then-Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi reserved HR 1 for the economic stimulus.
