MNN Urges House Members to Vote Against Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

MNN Urges House Members to Vote Against Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
MNN: H.R. 1 would have a devastating effect on Massachusetts nonprofits and communities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


November 15, 2017 - The Massachusetts Nonprofit Network (MNN), the Commonwealth's nonprofit association representing 800 nonprofit members in every region of the state, today sent letters to the entire Massachusetts congressional delegation urging them to vote against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1).

"As drafted, this bill will reduce charitable giving, eliminate a long-standing law prohibiting charities from engaging in partisan politics, and will impose new taxes on the sector," said Jim Klocke, CEO of MNN. "This bill will have a devastating impact on the Commonwealth's nonprofit community and the people and causes they serve."

In calling for the Massachusetts congressional delegation to oppose H.R. 1, MNN joins a growing chorus of opposition to the House bill, including the National Council of Nonprofits, Independent Sector, and the Council on Foundations.
