The discussion draft reflects the minority staff’s concern that many nonprofit hospitals receive substantial federal income tax benefits and subsidies without providing commensurate benefits to society.

"Lexology is a good barometer of a firm's expertise as the articles showcase a firm's understanding of the issues involved and how up to date their knowledge is.
