Jan. 31, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today praised Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) for directing the investigation of the IRS targeting of the tea party and other 501(c)4 organizations toward a November 2013 proposed rulemaking by the Treasury Department that will severely restrict the political speech of all 501(c)4s:
"House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp's request for all documents related to the IRS rulemaking is a step in the right direction to stop these egregious regulations from taking effect. The regulations would effectively legitimize the very IRS activity that resulted in the tea party targeting scandal of the past couple of years. Chairman Camp's request will help determine if the new regulations were driven more by politics than the law."
