FreedomWorks Applauds House Passage of Free Speech Bill

Following the passage of the Preventing IRS Abuse and Protecting Free Speech Act (H.R. 5053), FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Passage of this bill by the House is an important step in opposing political intimidation from the IRS. This powerful and corrupt tax agency should not be in a position to leak donor names to try to chill free speech. The Senate should take up this legislation immediately to help protect a healthy public policy discourse and rein in the IRS.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
