LAST CHANCE TO PROTECT NONPROFITS

11 December 2017 Published in News & Updates

JOIN UNA IN ACTING TO PROTECT PUBLIC TRUST IN AMERICA'S CHARITABLE NONPROFITS

The committee reconciling the House and Senate versions of Tax Bill includes Senator Hatch and Congressman Bishop. They are meeting today and language weakening the Johnson Amendment and Nonprofit Nonpartisanship remains in the bill.

OUR ONLY HOPE IS TO CALL HATCH AND BISHOP RIGHT NOW!!
Call Hatch and Bishop and tell them to reject any changes to the Johnson Amendment!
Senator Hatch: 202.224.5251
Congressman Rob Bishop: 202-225-0453

Then, if you have time, call your other Representatives (phone numbers follow).
Call your representatives (below) and deliver this important message:
“I’m a constituent and I’m calling in opposition to a very harmful provision in the tax bill that would weaken the Johnson Amendment and politicize charitable nonprofits, houses of worship, and foundations against our wishes. The harmful provision is Section 5201 of the House-passed tax bill that is now in a conference committee with the Senate. It is imperative that Senator/Representative reach out to every member of the conference committee and tell them the Johnson Amendment language in the House bill must be stripped from the final bill. Thank you.”

Senator Hatch at 202.224.5251
Senator Lee at 202.224.5444
