BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts House Republicans are weighing in on the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups.
Republican Leader Brad Jones is planning to offer a resolution in the Massachusetts House condemning the investigation of nonprofit groups with political affiliations.
Jones said the behavior of the IRS has drawn the ire of the groups that were targeted and taxpayers nationwide. He said those investigations amount to "a massive betrayal of public trust."
Jones said he'll offer the resolution during the next full formal House session.
The resolution will ask the state's congressional delegation to support the formation of a select committee made up of elected officials from both parties to investigate the alleged wrongdoings.
Jones said he wants to know if the investigations were the result of a few individuals or reflected a wider systematic failure.
