Where are we on Tax Reform?

“The clock is ticking for Republicans to notch a big legislative win this year. So policymakers in the Senate, House and White House have hit the ground running on tax reform. Tax negotiators have been in constant contact, the President is pursuing bipartisanship, and the leaders of both tax writing committees are soliciting input from members – one by retreat and the other by hearing.

“Last week, the “Big 6” tax negotiators – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn – met with President Trump to discuss tax reform and the White House reports the negotiators have come to consensus on many outstanding issues.” [Alliance for Charitable Reform]

Why Podcasting Might Be of Interest to Your Nonprofit

“The podcast medium has been growing steadily over the last few years. There are currently 67 million monthly podcast listeners in the U.S., up 21 percent from last year’s 57 million.

This is impressive for a medium that is still finding its bearings in many ways. According to Nicholas Quah, who hosts a weekly podcasting newsletter called Hot Pod, the medium is ‘(a) still propped up by a barely evolved technological infrastructure, (b) has only seen a few instances of significant capital investment, and (c) still sees its industry power very much under-organized.’” [Nonprofit Quarterly]
