I’m glad the IRS is finally trying to fix its rules for political activity by nonprofits. The existing rules have allowed the groups willing to aggressively flout tax rules and pour millions into manipulating elections to do so freely, while smaller groups dedicated to civic engagement have waited on the sidelines, too afraid of jeopardizing their nonprofit status to participate in our democracy as fully as they are allowed. With IRS REG-134417-13, the IRS can begin solving these problems, and should take this opportunity to do so.
