Brazil tax reform to enter congressional committee by Oct. 8 -lawmaker

BRASILIA, Aug 13 (Reuters) - A proposed constitutional amendment overhauling Brazil’s tax system will be put to lawmakers in a congressional committee tasked with drafting the proposal by Oct. 8, the bill’s coordinator Aguinaldo Ribeiro said on Tuesday.

“The idea is that we (lawmakers) will draft the text which will then be put to the plenary of the lower house,” Ribeiro told a congressional committee in Brasilia. Tax reform is likely to be the government’s main economic priority in the second half of this year, after a focus on pension reform in the first half.
