WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Congresswoman Candice Miller is co-sponsoring legislation aimed at prohibiting the IRS from enforcing new proposed rules that she says could unlawfully restrict the First Amendment Rights of tax exempt organizations, specifically the ones the Administration disagrees with.  Under the proposed rules, the IRS would be allowed to revoke an organization's non-profit status based upon what Miller calls "its own contrived definitions of political activity."

"The American people do not want to give the IRS additional power to regulate the free political speech of groups while it is under continuing investigation for politically motivated targeting of conservative organizations whose political views are at odds with the Administration," said Miller in co-sponsoring the "Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act of 2014.
