H.R.5420 would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to permit the release of information regarding the status of certain investigations is a bill to make public IRS investigations. This legislation was written in response to a May 2013 scandal which revealed that an IRS branch in Cincinnati, Ohio had been giving extra scrutiny to 501(c)4 applicant organizations associated with the Tea Party movement.  This legislation seeks to keep the scandal in the spotlight in the run up to the midterm elections.
