WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday he expects to unveil a proposal for overhauling the federal tax code this fall and to get legislation passed this year.

"We want America to wake up on New Year's Day 2018 with a new tax system," Ryan said in an interview with The New York Times. He said congressional tax writers were close to releasing their template for the tax system overhaul.
