Pence Attacks Johnson Amendment as House Panel Considers Changes

Printer-friendly version

The National Council of Nonprofits protested in letters to appropriators that changes to the enforcement of the Johnson Amendment would open churches and other religious nonprofits to “overzealous solicitations from politicians, paid consultants, and donors.”

Tim Delaney, the council’s president and CEO, told Tax Analysts after the vote that “charitable nonprofits, houses of worship, and foundations have united to warn Congress to keep the divisive and corrupting influences of partisan politics away from our missions — but the Appropriations Committee ignored their warnings.”
