Got Influence?

Got Influence?

Printer-friendly version

When it comes to tax reform in the U.S. Senate, nonprofits from eleven states have the inside track on delivering the message on how tax exemptions, giving incentives, and regulations affect the work that charitable nonprofits perform every day. The reason certain states have more influence is that the tax-writing committee, the Senate Finance Committee, is setting up work groups and making committee leadership assignments that will affect the policy debates and legislation for the next two years. Notably, an Individual Income Tax working group is being led by Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan). The Business Income Tax working group is being co-chaired by Senators John Thune (R-South Dakota) and Ben Cardin (D-Maryland). Senators Dean Heller (R-Nevada) and Michael Bennet (D-Colorado) are leading the group on Community Development and Infrastructure. The Finance Committee has also named the chair and ranking member of permanent subcommittees, some of which deal directly with nonprofit-related issues. Senators Michael Crapo (R-Idaho) and Bob Casey (D-Pennsylvania) will be in charge of the work of the Subcommittee on Taxation and IRS Oversight. Senators Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Mark Warner (D-Virginia) will lead the Subcommittee on Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Growth.
