Two staffers at the National Economic Council are getting promotions to the deputy director level in the wake of tax cuts becoming law, Gary Cohn told staff this morning.

Quick hits: Shahira Knight, a driving force on tax reform, will be deputy director for domestic policy, according to a White House official. Ashley Marquis, who was Cohn's chief of staff and is a Bush administration veteran, will be deputy for economic affairs. They join Everett Eissenstat, who is deputy for international affairs.
