In an ongoing effort to overhaul the tax code, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) and Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-UT) made an announcement recently that the Senate would be taking a "blank state" approach to tax reform. They said that this means everything will be taken out of the tax code and individual provisions will be added back only if compelling arguments can be made for why it should survive the tax overhaul process. Advocates, including MHP, are busy taking this opportunity to promote important housing policies, ranging from United for Homes' mission to fund the National Housing Trust Fund, to Affordable Rental Housing A.C.T.I.O.N.'s campaign to protect and strengthen the Low Income Housing Tax Credit.
