Senate Republicans will not put off their vote on tax reform until Alabama Senator-elect Doug Jones is seated, the Washington Examiner reports.

The upper chamber is still targeting early next week to vote on the final bill that comes out of conference with interim Republican Sen. Luther Strange's vote.

Senate Democrats have called on Mitch McConnell to delay the vote in order to seat Jones, but the Senate Majority Leader predictably rejected that ask, the Examiner reports.

Republicans want to have a bill on the desk of President Donald Trump on Dec. 20 and are looking to implement their new tax plan Jan. 1.

Jones, who defeated Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday's special election to replace Jeff Sessions, is expected to sworn-in after the new year.
