The final frontier
U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam has a series of bills set to hit the House floor today dealing with the IRS scandal from earlier this year, including one to try to limit the agency's conference costs.
It's in response, at least partly, to this Star Trek parody video made for a 2010 IRS conference. Appropriately, the legislation is called the SPOCC act. (Stop Playing on Citizen's Cash Act)
Roskam has also proposed legislation that would keep the IRS from asking a group about its politics or religious leanings in response to the news earlier this year the tax-collecting agency had targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny.
