There is still time to nominate fellow officers for a TOP COPS Award®!  The deadline for nominations is Jan. 11, 2022. Click on the link below for the nomination form. Selection for an award is based on involvement in a specific incident or case wherein an officer(s) has gone above and beyond the call of duty; Registration is still open for NAPO’s 33rd Annual Police, Fire, EMS, & Municipal Employee Pension & Benefits Seminar, however, the event has been postponed until Feb. 27 to March 1, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada due to COVID-19; Learn from industry experts the latest information on pensions and benefits; Under the House-passed bill, the cap on SALT deductions would be lifted from $10,000 to $80,000, retroactive to the beginning of 2021 and through 2030. Many of the Democrat members of Congress we have been working with to repeal the SALT cap stated they would not support the Build Back Better Act without a compromise on the SALT cap. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) are still negotiating their own compromise on the SALT cap, which would keep the $10,000 cap in place for households making over $400-550,000 per year, exempting households making less than that threshold from the cap; Congress punted on dealing with Fiscal Year 2022 Appropriations by passing another continuing resolution through Feb. 18, 2022, funding the federal government and its programs at FY 2021 funding levels; NAPO’s updated “Sponsor/Cosponsor” spreadsheet and the latest “Legislative Positions” document are available on NAPO’s website; To honor your service and show appreciation for your dedication, Citizen Watch America would like to extend a special offer to all NAPO Members this Holiday Season. In addition to the Citizen Thin Blue Line watch offer, they are providing a 15% discount code that can be used on the Citizen website for all watches (Thin Blue Line excluded). Visit www.Citizenwatch.com and to use the code: FIRST21.
