House Speaker Paul Ryan says the White House and congressional Republicans will release an outline of their tax overhaul plan by the end of the month.

Ryan said Wednesday that after the tax draft is released the week of Sept. 25 a detailed version will be readied in hopes of action by the House later this fall.

Many GOP lawmakers are hungry for details about the upcoming tax plan.

Ryan's news conference comes after President Donald Trump's meeting on Tuesday evening with a bipartisan group of senators to discuss tax reform in which the White House said in a statement "was highly productive, and will spur constructive discussion moving forward."

In addition, the president has plans for an aggressive travel schedule, taking him to as many as 13 states over the next seven weeks, to sell the idea of a tax overhaul as the administration tries to avoid repeating the communications failures of its attempt to repeal Obamacare.

The strategy was revealed by top advisers to about 40 allies during a closed-door meeting last week. It calls for the president to visit states he won where a Democratic senator is up for re-election next year, including Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Montana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, said three people who attended. The people asked not to be identified discussing internal strategy.

In some instances, cabinet members will be deployed behind Trump in a “second wave” after the president’s speeches and town hall meetings to amplify his message.

Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning pushing lawmakers to "move fast" on a tax overhaul.

Trump tweeted: "The approval process for the biggest Tax Cut & Tax Reform package in the history of our country will soon begin. Move fast Congress!"

Republicans must agree upon a companion budget plan if the tax effort is to get off the ground.
