The GOP-led House is scheduled to vote Monday to repeal billions of dollars in funding for as many 87,000 new IRS agents, which was part of the Democrats’ $740 billion Inflation Reduction Act.
The vote is expected to occur after the House votes on the new proposed rules package. For the legislation to be adopted, it would need to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate and be signed by President Biden.
House Majority Leader Steve Scalise said the House also plans to vote this week on a bill to form a committee on “the weaponization of the federal government against citizens” and legislation that would end oil sales to China from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).
Scalise tweeted: “THIS WEEK—The House Republican Majority will move to pass legislation to:
– Defund the 87,000 new IRS agents
– Establish a committee on the weaponization of the federal government against citizens
– End SPR oil sales to China
– Hold woke prosecutors accountable.”
