The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has released its 2016 Taxpayer Bill of Rights, and it is a far cry from the original text of the bill.
The ALEC is the conservative organization that drafts and passes state and federal tax legislation and bills that have passed both houses of Congress.
But the text of its Taxpayer Bylaws, which were drafted in 2009, was substantially revised in 2010.
In the years since, ALEC has drafted a number of versions of the Taxpayer Act, and its latest version is now in the final stages of being negotiated and debated.
Among other changes, the new version includes language that is much more favorable to the housing industry and would allow corporations to deduct their tax liabilities from their wages and salaries, something the organization has long advocated.
“It’s an amazing revision,” said Tom Miller, a professor of government and economics at Northeastern University and an expert on the ALEC agenda.
The bill also includes language requiring that states create a housing affordability commission and require local governments to set housing rules to ensure that residents are able to afford housing.
Miller said the bill could have major ramifications for housing affordability in many parts of the country, and that many lawmakers who are considering legislation to combat housing affordability have been “filling the bill with these ridiculous provisions.”
“It is absolutely disgraceful,” Miller said.
“The entire bill is a giant giveaway to the landlords.
It’s about allowing them to get away with ripping people off.”
In the new tax bill, which was released this week, the ALEC-written provisions have been eliminated, as have provisions that would have allowed companies to deduct the costs of construction on a project from the profits of the project.
The bills would have also given states greater latitude in how to collect property taxes and make up the difference between the property tax owed on a property and the amount of revenue collected.
The ALEC bills also contain language that would prohibit local governments from imposing rules that would “promote” or “substantially” reduce housing affordability, including restrictions on how many units a city can develop and limits on how much the city can spend on affordable housing.
In its new version of the tax bill the ALEC bill makes no mention of the previous version of its bills, which had included language that included such provisions.
“There are a lot of good things in there,” Miller added.
The new version also includes an amendment to the Taxpayers Bill of Right that would require cities to create a local housing affordability unit, a requirement that was previously included in the ALEC bills.
Miller explained that in the past, ALEC would have pushed for such a requirement, but that the organization’s leadership had been unable to find the money to fund the program.
ALEC also dropped the provision that would allow states to “reinforce the concept” of “social mobility” by allowing cities to set up housing voucher programs for low-income students.
ALEC is not the only conservative group to have taken aim at the current version of this bill.
Last year, the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank that has become one of ALEC’s main fundraising arms, published an open letter to members that said the legislation would “ensure that homeowners are not saddled with an ever-increasing tax burden that they cannot afford, and would also ensure that the federal government is able to ensure its tax obligations are paid in full.”
The letter urged members to “support the House version of our bill,” which has a similar version of ALEC-sponsored legislation that was also adopted by the House of Representatives.
The House version has been called the “fiscal cliff” bill by conservatives.
It would extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone, but limit their duration by five years, from Dec. 31, 2011 to Dec. 21, 2017.
This bill is not a complete repeal of the Bush-era tax cuts, but instead a partial one that extends them until Dec. 15, 2021.
It is also called the Tax Relief Reconciliation Act by conservatives, because it would give a credit to homeowners to deduct mortgage interest and property taxes on their income taxes.
The original version of that bill included language to allow states “to impose certain conditions on their state and local tax levies that would increase their share of federal tax revenues.”
But the Senate bill includes language specifically allowing states to impose “conditions” on their taxes and states to waive some of those conditions.
“We think it’s a really good bill,” Miller, the professor, said of the House bill.
Miller pointed to a number other changes that ALEC has made to its bills. “
These are the people that are doing the dirty work of trying to destroy the Affordable Care Act.”
Miller pointed to a number other changes that ALEC has made to its bills.
“They’re trying to eliminate all of these things that were in the previous bill that would give states more flexibility,” Miller continued.
“That’s not going to happen.”
Miller noted that the
