Vice President Mike Pence will visit Indianapolis on Thursday to push proposed changes to federal tax code, news outlets have reported.

Some of the many changes proposed by the Republican tax legislation include repeal of tax credits for adoption, clinical research on rare disease treatment and disaster relief not already covered by previous acts of Congress. 

Additionally, teachers would no longer be able to write off the costs of school supplies they purchased.

The details, including a specific location and time of Pence's visit, have not yet been released.

President Trump visited the State Fairgrounds in September to tout a broad tax overhaul, but the vice president will be discussing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which is more than 400 pages long. Pence discussed tax code change the week before in Anderson, Indiana.

Since the beginning of November, Pence has visited Pennsylvania and Florida to promote the Republican-backed legislation. On Tuesday, he met with the House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, and House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Washington, to discuss the legislation.
