Senate Hearings On The Irs

— NPR's Larry Abramson reports on today's hearings in the Senate Finance Committee which is looking into alleged abuses by the Internal Revenue Service. Last year, the House passed a bill that would reform the IRS. The Senate is preparing to vote on its reform plan. Today's hearings are part of an effort to increase support for the Senate legislation which is more aggressive and more expensive than the House version.
