Live coverage: Pence talks tax reform in Lancaster stop

The Buffalo News will provide live coverage today of Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Buffalo to talk about proposed tax cuts and to help Rep. Chris Collins raise campaign funds.

Beginning around 11 a.m., Buffalo News reporters Maki Becker and Robert McCarthy, as well as photographer Derek Gee, will provide live coverage of Pence's stop at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, scheduled at 11:45 a.m., and his appearance at Salvatore's Italian Gardens, where the fundraiser for Collins is being held. He's also expected to visit Performance Advantage, a tool mounting company in Lancaster.

News reporter Barbara O'Brien will be outside the restaurant covering a protest against Pence and Collins.

Pence will be talking about President Trump's tax cut plan, which congressional Republicans hope to pass this year. Trump has called it the biggest tax cut in U.S. history. Democrats have said Trump's plan benefits the wealthiest Americans more than the middle class.

On the eve of Pence's visit, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer reminded voters that the Trump plan calls for the elimination of a federal deduction for state and local taxes, which benefits taxpayers in high-tax states like New York.
