Johnson Amendment Update

Posted By Kelly Pepper, Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, Monday, July 17, 2017

The amendment to strike Section 116 related to Johnson Amendment enforcement failed by a vote of 24 to 28. The vote on nonpartisanship was not by party line as feared. Two Republicans, Charles Dent (R-PA) and Scott Taylor (R-VA) voted with all Democrats to remove the measure that would make it virtually impossible for the IRS to enforce the Johnson Amendment against even grievous violations of the Johnson Amendment.

 

We are attaching a link to the National Council of Nonprofits’ news release related to the amendment, “Nonprofits to Congress: Don't Politicize Houses of Worship” that we encourage you to share with your staffs and communities. We will update you with more information as it becomes available to us.
