Cheddar Morning Business Report: Republican tax plan, Uber, Star Wars

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

The Republican plan to reform the tax code would delay tax cuts for businesses until 2019. Stocks markets have been rallying since President Donald Trump got elected on expectations that he would ease regulation on businesses and cut corporate taxes.

Uber's new CEO, Dara Kazrashahi, says he wants the company to go public in 2019. Uber's currently valued at $17 billion and is testing a premium support hotline for its more frequent riders.

Disney announced plans to release a new Star Wars trilogy once the current one wraps up. The new trilogy will have "new characters from a part a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored." Disney also plans to include an original Star Wars series in their new streaming service.
