Cruz objects to STOP Tax ID theft and asks to pass S.2066 (IRS discrimination) and S.2067 (tax status)

Senator Klobuchar asked unanimous consent the Senate take up and pass Calendar #316, S.149, Stopping Tax Offenders and Prosecuting Identity Theft Act of 2013.

Senator Cruz reserved his right to object and asked consent to take up S.2066 and S.2067, en bloc. Senator Klobuchar objected. Senator Cruz objected to the original request.

S 2066 is a bill to amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit the intentional discrimination of a person or organization by an employee of the Internal Revenue Service.

S.2067 is a bill to prohibit the Department of the Treasury from assigning tax statuses to organizations based on their political beliefs and activities.
