A few weeks before the Senate adjourned for the August recess, Senate Finance members, which includes Kyl, met to discuss how to move forward on the Bush tax cuts. Committee Republicans at that time had called for a markup of the legislation.
"I thought that was an important committee," Kyl said, adding, "Now we just get bypassed; because it's inconvenient?"
Kyl noted that vetting the legislation through committee might clear up problems that might stall the bill's progression on the floor."That's where a lot of the problems that we find later can be corrected," he said.
