    "Tax Reform: Now it's the Senate's Turn"

    On November 9, 2017, the Senate Republicans released their version of the sweeping tax reform plan (the “Senate Plan” or the “Plan”). Although the Senate Plan has many proposals that are similar to those in the House Bill, there are also many significant differences. Even those provisions of the Senate Plan that generally mirror the provisions of the House Bill contain many nuanced differences. The scope of the Senate Plan and the House Bill is very extensive, and, if enacted, these bills would significantly transform the current tax system affecting all U.S taxpayers, including individuals, businesses, and tax-exempt organizations.

    This Stroock Special Bulletin follows up on the previous bulletins dedicated to the tax reform and highlights some of the more significant differences of the Senate Plan from the House Bill.

    "Four Things You Need to Know About the CFIUS Reform Legislation"

    On November 8, 2017, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and a bi-partisan group of co-sponsors, including Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and others, introduced the long-awaited Foreign Investment Risk Review and Modernization Act (“FIRRMA”). A companion bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Cong. Robert Pittenger (R-NC9) and a bi-partisan group of co-sponsors, including Dave Loebsack (D-IA2).

    This Stroock Special Bulletin provides an overview of the proposed legislation, which would greatly expand the power and reach of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”), the multi-agency panel that vets foreign acquisitions to address national security concerns. Unless withdrawn or satisfactorily modified, transactions deemed a threat by CFIUS may be blocked or unwound by the President.
