A group of Central  Oregon non-profits is speaking out on a Housebill that would get rid of most itemized tax deductions on the state return.  State Representative Jason Conger of Bend met with 30 non-profits on Rriday to see how they could be impacted by losing this popular deduction.  Conger says even a talked about cap on itemized deductions at 50 thousand dollars could have a big impact.

 

"Again, the message that I took away is that even the cap would be very detrimental - many have had to make cuts over the last four years- deep cuts and at a time when they continue to see more need.”

 

The non-profit groups ranging from The Environmental Center - to non-profits that serve veterans, children and the elderly signed a statement opposing Housebill 2001.

Conger says this is a priority bill of speaker Tina Kotek, so it could be pushed heavily this session.
