Jorge Castro Quoted on Tax Policy Impact of Retirement of Senior Senate Finance Committee Members in Bloomberg Tax

"Democratic Tax Writers to See Shake-up Ahead of 2025 Cliff"

Bloomberg Tax

Jorge Castro, former tax counsel to Democrats on the Senate Finance and House Ways & Means Committees, commented on the tax policy impact of the retirement of U.S. Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Tom Carper (D-DE) – three senior Senate Finance Committee Democrats well-known for their bipartisan dealmaking. The three Democratic retirements on the Finance Committee will leave gaps in institutional committee knowledge, bipartisan dealmaking chops, and interest areas, said Castro. "All those members have been proven legislators in the tax policy space, so to lose them is going to be very significant," Castro said. "They're not going to be easy shoes to fill."
