Rep. Sander Levin

February 11, 2013

Dear Congressman Levin,

I am quite concerned about HR 592 Federal Disaster Assistance Nonprofit Fairness Act of 2013.

Why should houses of worship receive federal disaster assistance when they do not pay taxes? This is representation without taxation. I do not want to subsidize anyone's religious beliefs, even those whose beliefs I happen to share. I am tired of the blurring of the lines between "Church" and State. If religious bodies want Federal aid, they should be paying taxes.

Madison Heights , MI
