Progress of the recent tax bill hit a snag on Thursday as two GOP Senators raised some concerns. All sectors closed down on Thursday dragging markets lower, with the Healthcare and Materials contributing most losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.31 percent to close at 24,508.66, while the S&P 500 Index fell 0.41 percent to close at 2,652.01.
