On Oct. 9, 2017, a federal judge in Wisconsin ruled clergy housing allowances unconstitutional. Further arguments are expected to be heard on Oct. 30, 2017. Given the importance of this ruling to our clergy, the Conference office of Finance & Administration has prepared an FAQ to provide more information on this. If you have further questions after reading the FAQ, contact Conference Treasurer Bill Burnside at email@example.com
