Grijalva's involvement is due to his role as the highest ranking Democrat on the House's Natural Resources Committee. In addition to the tax-related provisions, the Senate version of the bill also includes a provision opening up Alaska's Arctic National Wilderness Refuge.
As the Conference Committee started, Grijalva tweeted his disapproval of how the Republicans are handling the conference.
