In a Statement of Administration Policy, the White House announced its opposition to the passage of H.R. 5806, the Supporting America’s Charities Act.  The proposed bill permanently extends certain tax provisions relating to qualified conservation contributions, food contributions, and distributions from individual retirement accounts to public charities, but does not include offsets.  A Joint Committee on Taxation report provided that the tax provisions would add $11.1 billion to the deficit over 10 years.
