    The Dow Jones industrial average hit another milestone Thursday, closing above 24,000 for the first time, CNBC reported.

    It closed at 331.67-points, with United Technologies leading the way. The S&P 500 also reached an all-time high, advancing 0.8 percent.

    The milestones come as the Senate closes in on a vote on a bill that would overhaul the tax code with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., becoming a key supporter of the bill. President Donald Trump has promised tax reform, and the stock market has been buoyed by expectations of lower corporate taxes since his election.
