The following is an update from Congressman Peter Roskam and his fight against the IRS and against “out of Control” Washington spending:
First, Congressman Roskam’s IRS Asset Forfeiture Bill unanimously passed out of the House earlier this week. There is a companion bill introduced by Sen. Tim Scott from South Carolina on the Senate side and we’re hopeful this bill will finally get signed into law and close this dark chapter in IRS history.
Second, you may have heard the disappointing news that the Department of Justice has decided not to review the Ways & Means referral seeking criminal charges against former head of the IRS Lois Lerner. Congressman Roskam and Ways & Means Chairman Kevin Brady both came out strongly against this decision today.
Finally, while Congressman Roskam wholeheartedly supports hurricane relief and voted for a standalone relief bill that was sent to the Senate earlier this week, Congressman Roskam voted against a package today from the Senate that increased our debt limit without any meaningful spending reforms.
