IRS SCANDAL UPDATE: CNN: Republicans to make big pushes on oversight legislation.

Before the House breaks for August recess, Republicans plan to pass legislation next week designed to “stop government abuse,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor reiterated Saturday.

The legislation includes 10 measures for floor votes, largely pegged to this year’s IRS controversy in which political groups seeking tax-exempt status received extra scrutiny. Republicans especially want to roll back the agency’s role in overseeing key parts of Obamacare.

It’s a good start.
