    SHERMAN of california in the house of representatives Thursday, December 11, 2014 Mr. SHERMAN. Mr. Speaker, I voted against suspending the rules and adopting the ``Supporting America's Charities Act.'' I think there are strong arguments in favor of this legislation and arguments of roughly equal weight that we should not at this time make these tax incentives permanent when they are not paid for.



    As I have stated in the Congressional Record on many occasions, I believe that controversial matters should come up under regular order, allowing adequate debate time and preferably allowing for amendments from the floor. This legislation is controversial enough to warrant that attention.

    Under these circumstances I could not vote to suspend the rules. I might well vote for this legislation if it came to the floor of the House through regular order, particularly if members were allowed to offer amendments.
