Sen. Cory Gardner bill insulates IRS from undue public sector union influence

Nov. 11, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) for introducing the Preventing Unionization of Revenue Service Employees Act that would bar the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from unionizing:

“Senator Gardner’s approach goes to the heart of the Hatch Act civil service protections that ensure the bureaucracy is not subject to undue political influence. The rise of public employee unions as major contributors to the left has long been a threat to the political neutrality of the civil service system. The IRS’ unprecedented targeting of conservative organizations and donors makes it all the more important that Senator Gardner’s brilliant legislation become law.”
