Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is slated to discuss the Trump administration's tax reform efforts with The Hill’s editor-in-chief, Bob Cusack, at an event on Wednesday.

The event, part of The Hill’s Newsmaker Series, will take place from 8 a.m. to 9:35 a.m. on April 26 at the Newseum.

The event comes on the day that President Trump is expected to describe his principles for tax reform. The White House and congressional Republicans have made overhauling the tax code one of their top priorities for 2017.

Cusack will interview Mnuchin about the administration’s priorities and timeline for tax reform. Mnuchin said last week that it is unlikely that a tax bill will pass by August, but the administration is still aiming for tax reform legislation to pass this year.

After the interview with the Treasury secretary, tax and budget experts will participate in a panel discussion about the prospects for tax reform.

Among the panelists will be former House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.), who is now a senior policy adviser at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Other panelists include Center on Budget and Policy Priorities senior fellow Jared Bernstein, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget President Maya MacGuineas and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist.

The American Bankers Association is sponsoring the event.

Those interested in attending are being asked to register in advance, since walk-ins will not be accepted.
