From NumbersUSA, a 501(c)(4) organization committed to legal and reduced immigration:
One Month Left To Comment On IRS Rule
There's a little more than one month left for anyone to submit a comment to the IRS's proposed rule that would silence certain non-profit organizations, including NumbersUSA. Thanks to those who have already joined the more than 10,000 concerned citizens who have left a comment!
The proposed rule presents a real threat to our grade cards and faxing in the months leading up to federal elections. If enacted, certain non-profit organizations would not be able to even mention a candidate's name within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of the general election - even if the mention has nothing to do with the election itself. Nor, would we be able to tell you when a Member of Congress who is also running for office is pushing an amnesty.
This rule would require us to take down our grade cards and non-partisan candidate comparison pages and shut down most of our activism efforts during the election window.
If you want to learn more about the proposed rule and leave a public comment on the federal register's website, please visit http://www.ProtectC4FreeSpeech.com.
