Tax Reform
On November 2, 2017, the House tax reform bill, H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act , was released. The bill includes language that would significantly weaken the Johnson Amendment, by granting a partial exemption from the politicking ban for houses of worship and their auxiliary organizations. It would also nearly double the standard deduction, creating a chilling effect on itemized deductions (which were not affected) as the threshold for charitable giving would have to exceed the standard deduction before one itemizes. This decrease in the number of people who itemize would result in a decrease in charitable giving in the U.S. by up to $13 billion annually, according to a study from the Lilly School of Philanthropy. The bill raises the amount of cash donations individuals can donate each year; increasing the limit from 50% of adjusted gross income (AGI) to 60% of AGI. The measure also fixes the deductible limit on volunteer mileage by switching from a fixed statutory amount ($0.14/mile) to a rate that would be adjusted for inflation. The bill does not include a universal deduction that would enable individuals who take the standard deduction to also receive a tax incentive for giving back to their communities through charitable donations. In early October, the Universal Charitable Giving Act (HR 3988)  was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would create a universal deduction - something  NPCC has been advocating for  in the tax reform discussion. The bill would allow taxpayers who take the standard deduction to deduct up to one-third of the amount of the standard deduction.

The bill addresses myriad other issues, such as tax rates, mortgage deductions, estate taxes, endowments and more. It also includes provisions on executive compensation, foundation excise tax, and donor advised funds. The bill does not include a provision to repeal the employer and individual mandates to purchase health insurance, a key element of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare). It would also leave unchanged tax incentives for workers to contribute to their retirement savings plans, such as 403(b) and 401(k) plans, although it does make some adjustments to the rules on converting between plans.

The bill is expected to go to the House floor the week of November 13. The Senate is expected to release its separate version in mid-November. The stated goal of Republican leaders is to have a bill on the President's desk by New Year's Day. Tax reform will likely change significantly over the next weeks and months.

Travel Ban Blocked
A federal judge in Hawaii issued a nationwide temporary order blocking President Trump's third attempt at a travel ban, which would have indefinitely stopped almost all travel to the U.S. from seven countries, The New York Times reports.

Health Care Navigators and Religious Exemptions
On October 12, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order on health care that will end subsidies to health insurance companies that help pay out-of-pocket costs of low-income people.  State Department of Financial Services Superintendent Maria Vullo said the executive order  is an "effort to pre-empt state law" that will have a "destabilizing" effect on the health insurance market.  President Trump plans to cut subsidy payments to insurers in his most aggressive move yet to undermine Obamacare after months of unsuccessful repeal efforts on Capitol Hill, according to Politico.

The subsidies, which are worth an estimated $7 billion this year and are paid out in monthly installments, may stop almost immediately since Congress hasn't appropriated funding for the program. A s the New York Times writes: "insurance markets could quickly unravel."New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced last month that his office intends to sue the federal government to preserve the Affordable Care Act's cost-sharing subsidies that were slashed by a presidential executive order. In August, a U.S. Supreme Court granted 18 attorneys general , led by Schneiderman and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, the right to defend insurers against these cuts.

The Trump Administration has cut back significantly its support for health care enrollment outreach, as this article from our friends at The Commonwealth Fund illustrates. New York no longer depends on federal marketing, and has invested in statewide Navigators who help people sign up for healthcare. In related news , the Department of Health and Human Services, in early October, "issued two rules rolling back a federal requirement that employers must include birth control coverage in their health insurance plans. The rules offer an exemption to any employer that objects to covering contraception services on the basis of sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions." However, benefits analysts predict many employers won't stop covering birth control, particularly since nearly 90% did before the Affordable Care Act was enacted in 2010.

Regulating Charities and Technology
State charity regulators from across the country convened for this year's National Association of Attorneys General/ National Association of State Charities Officials Conference in Washington D.C. in early October. The conference focused on how technology and access to new sources of data are impacting state charity regulation.

New York City Human Rights Survey
The NYC Commission on Human Rights launched a comprehensive survey asking Muslim, Arab, South Asian, Jewish, and Sikh New Yorkers to share information on their experiences of discrimination, bias, and bias-motivated harassment and violence since July 2016 , when xenophobic and Islamophobic rhetoric during the election season began to deeply penetrate the national discourse. The project is aimed at addressing the lack of comprehensive data about the scope and frequency of bias-motivated harassment, discrimination, and violence across at-risk communities throughout the City. The survey closes Thursday, November 30 and is completely anonymous and confidential (e.g., IP addresses cannot be collected). Click here to begin the survey.

The legislation, sponsored by Public Advocate Letitia James, passed in the City Council in April 2017 and signed into law in May 2017, is aimed at closing the gender pay gap and encouraging employers to set compensation based on qualifications.

Navigating the Charitable Giving Landscape
MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth

Nonprofit organizations are continually faced with the challenge of increasing donations, but often do not have the tools that enable them to better understand individual giving trends. In an effort to bridge this information gap, the MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth has released the third edition of Donation Insights, which uses anonymized and aggregated MasterCard transaction data to provide insights on giving .

Key insights include:
- Growth in giving moderated: Total year-over-year donation growth was 4.3% year-to-date through June, compared to 5.9% in 2016.
- Donations vary by day of week: Giving is concentrated on the weekends more so for Environmental and Animal-Related causes than any other category.
