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.
