Manuscript donations.Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D-NY) introduced on December 10 the National Heritage Resource Act (S. 1940) to restore a tax deduction for artwork or manuscripts donated by their creators to libraries and museums. Since 1969 such deductions have been limited to the cost of the materials rather than the fair market value of the items. S. 1940 is the companion to HR 2050, introduced last April by Rep. Thomas Downey (D-NY). In his introductory statement (in the December 10 Congressional Record, pp. S17760-61), Sen. Moynihan spoke about how the deduction was lost:

…it seems to me time that we be open about the origins of the 1969 legislation…. It was inserted in the Tax Reform Act of 1969 with the specific intent of denying a tax deduction to former President Lyndon B. Johnson and former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey…. One Senator sought to punish, in their political eclipse, two great public men who had been unassailable at the apogee of their influence and strength. But the legislation went far beyond its original narrow intent, catching in its net the entire creative community. A matter of indifference to its sponsor, perhaps, but hardly to us. A full political generation later, it is time for remedy.
