Now that it’s official and a Biden administration takes the reins in January, we can expect to see rapid movement on numerous issues important to the country as a whole.
But what about the arts and culture sector? In addition to improved arts funding, there are plenty of issues a Biden administration can impact. Here are few I hope to see movement on within the first year:
- Don’t just restore net neutrality, push for reclassifying broadband internet as a Title II public utility.
- Rolling back charitable deduction limits implemented by the 2017 GOP tax bill. Alternatively, moving toward a new, broader set of charitable giving tax credits would be a welcome change.
- Rolling back limitations in the 2017 GOP tax bill that restrict artists’ ability to deduct reasonable work related expenses.
- Continue to advocate for increasingly strict improvements to the BOTS Act while simultaneously seeking maximum penalties when prosecuting violations.
I’m sure there are important items I’m overlooking so what else would you add to the list?
