Previous Tax Incentive Co-sponsors Who Haven't Yet Signed-on in 2014

While we're thrilled to have 222 House and 26 Senate co-sponsors for legislation to make the enhanced easement incentive permanent, there are still 34 senators and 50 representatives who supported identical legislation in previous years but haven't co-sponsored H.R. 2807 or S. 526.

Please help us get these legislators back on board. It ought to be easy to call, thank them for their past support and urge them to sign-on in the new Congress. Simply call the capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 or click here for detailed talking points and fact sheets:

  • Representatives can co-sponsor the Conservation Easement Incentive Act, H.R. 2807, by contacting Lauryn Schothorst in Congressman Jim Gerlach’s office at (5-4315) or Lakecia Foster in Congressman Mike Thompson’s office at (5-3311).
  • Senators can co-sponsor S. 526, introduced by Senators Max Baucus (D-MT) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) by sending a signed Unanimous Consent request to the Senate floor..

November 6: With only eight weeks remaining before Congress adjourns (of which Congress will be in Washington for only 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 being lost because the incentive has expired. Learn more »
