A message from the Land Trust Alliance about the stagnated charitable package languishing in the Senate:
Release date November 6: With only eight weeks remaining before Congress adjourns-and Congress will only be in Washington for four-there is limited time to act. Ask your senators to urge their party’s leadership to include the charitable package in any year-end tax legislation. We've been meeting with Senate offices and have been encouraged by their willingness to consider making some tax extenders permanent. This puts us in a good position, but we need you to reinforce that special places are billing lost because the incentive has expired.
