Tax Code Change Could Free Churches, Charities to Become Political Players

"This is a radical proposal to change campaign finance laws," said Tim Delaney, president of the National Council of Nonprofits, which has been lobbying against changes to the Johnson Amendment. "Charities and foundations have worked for years, decades and centuries to build the public's trust, and we don't want to be dragged down by toxic partisanship."

Mr. Delaney and others who oppose the move say charities would come under pressure by partisan donors to engage in politics as a condition of their giving.
