Michael Peregrine was quoted in the June 3 issue of Health Law Reporter in the lead article "Ways and Means Hearing, Grassley Letter Keep Congress' Foot on Nonprofit Hospitals." Mr. Peregrine said the May 26 hearings suggest "an increased likelihood" that Congress will propose nonprofit oversight legislation that could refine the criteria for tax-exempt hospitals and dictate nonprofit governance standards. "I think is fairly clear from the confluence of the Grassley letter and the focus of the hearings that Congressional leaders believe that the nonprofit, tax-exempt hospital industry deserves special legislative attention with respect to the criteria by which 501(c)(3) status is preserved under the Internal Revenue Code," Mr. Peregrine said.
