Sen. Girod Urges Sen. Wyden, Democrats to Reject IRS Bank Spying Scheme
SALEM, Ore. – State Senator Fred Girod (R-Lyons) is calling on U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, chairman of the Senate Finance committee, to reject proposals to spy on Americans’ bank accounts.
“Oregonians do not want their bank accounts spied on. Senator Wyden must ensure these proposals do not make it into Biden’s blowout spending bill. There are better ways to enforce tax law than a dragnet operation that would lead to unnecessary audits of regular Oregonians.
“If this proposal passes, the legislature must take immediate action to ensure Oregonians’ privacy is protected. Legislative Democrats, the Attorney General, and the Treasurer must pledge to not enforce this extreme proposal. Oregonians deserve better than this invasion of privacy.”
