8Washington (Feb. 28, 2003) -- The House Ways and Means Committee will be plenty busy with tax issues this year.

The committee sent a list of its goals to the House Budget Committee.

Ways and Means will also consider legislation that would make permanent tax provisions of the 2001 tax law. And it will also seek to introduce legislation to improve retirement savings incentives.

Tax breaks to encourage energy conservation, production, and distribution will also be considered.
