WASHINGTON — Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, under fire for a plan to keep committee members' proposals for overhauling the Internal Revenue Code secret, may release portions of the legislation after the August recess.

The Montana democrat plans to release a broad outline of a comprehensive tax reform bill and several discussion drafts in an effort to move the process forward, lobbyists with knowledge of the matter said. In a Senate floor speech July 23, Baucus said that the Senate Finance Committee would mark up a tax reform bill this fall, although he did not offer a target date.
