Johnson Amendment Will Remain Intact

December 2017 -- We are happy to share that the Johnson Amendment will not be a part of the final tax package being negotiated by the House and Senate conferees. In November, the American Ethical Union, along with other members of the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) wrote letters to the Democratic Caucus and Republican Caucus to protect the Johnson Amendment. Larry Decker, Executive Director of SCA said "we will continue to monitor actions by the House and Senate as they move to pass a final megabus approps bill in the coming weeks, but until we have a final bill without language affecting the Johnson Amendment, we need to remain vigilant and we need to continue applying pressure."
