Nonprofit Advocates Make Last-Ditch Push on Senate Tax Bill

Nonprofit Advocates Make Last-Ditch Push on Senate Tax Bill

Printer-friendly version

During a call with nonprofit leaders and reporters hosted by the National Council of Nonprofits, Amanda Tyler, executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, said she fears Mr. Lankford will push to loosen the Johnson Amendment.

Doing so, she warned, could invite "troubling entanglement" by the Internal Revenue Service into the affairs of charities.

Nonprofits should be "really concerned about this change that is a small part of the bill but would have a really outsized impact on our sector," she said. "The impact will be seismic."
