As previously reported, the tax cut legislation introduced by Republicans in the House of Representatives eliminates some of the restrictions on political speech by non-profits currently imposed by the Johnson Amendment.  Senate Republicans have drafted their own version of a tax bill.  As reported by The Hill, Republicans on Thursday released a 253- page description of the bill (full text), though not the full legislative language.  It does not appear that the Senate is proposing any change to the Johnson Amendment’s current restrictions on political intervention by non-profits. The Senate bill is scheduled for markup by the Finance Committee on Nov. 13.
