AP Washington Bureau Chief Julie Pace will lead the discussion with Ryan, who is expected to address his plans for tax reform and other policy issues that directly affect Americans.

The conversation will include questions from additional AP journalists who regularly cover the White House, Capitol Hill and politics.

“We look forward to engaging Speaker Ryan in a meaningful and robust discussion on taxes and all the complex issues facing leaders in Washington,” said Pace. “With its broad reach, the AP is in a unique position to connect the speaker with people around the country.”

AP will livestream “Newsmakers” on its Facebook page, where viewers will be able to submit questions. The interviews will also be available to APTN clients.

Ryan’s interview will be livestreamed at 10:45 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

Future installments of “Newsmakers” with decision makers and leaders in Washington are expected monthly.
