WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The tax-writing committee of the U.S. House of Representatives will begin holding hearings on a Republican tax reform proposal next week, the panel's Republican chairman said on Tuesday.

Brady has said he intends to unveil tax reform legislation this spring. But on Tuesday, it was not clear how an ongoing congressional debate about repealing and replacing the healthcare law known as Obamacare might impact the intended timeline.
