Infoseek search __________ ______ Help Navigation E-mail From Washington From: John King/CNN White House correspondent In: Philadelphia, Pa. Posted 10-8-97 Subject: Clinton to propose IRS citizens panel on Friday After weeks of Republican criticism that he was defending the Internal Revenue Service, sources tell CNN that President Bill Clinton on Friday will propose creating national and regional citizens boards to handle taxpayer complaints against the agency. Clinton's citizens panels would not have as much authority over the IRS as most Republicans prefer. But the White House believes the proposal will give the president cover. Under the Clinton plan, a national citizens panel would be created to serve as a forum for oversight and to handle taxpayer complaints. Similar panels would be created to serve as complaint clearinghouses for each of the IRS' three dozen regional offices. An administration official tells CNN that Clinton will also commit to internal IRS reforms designed to make the agency more efficient. The administration move comes after sharp complaints from congressional Democrats and White House political advisers who worried that the administration appeared to be defending the agency during Republican-called hearings that highlighted taxpayer complaints. _________________________________________________________________ In Other News: Wednesday Oct. 8, 1997 •/BIG> Senators Grill Ickes On Democratic Fund-Raising •/BIG> Democratic Fund-Raisers Will Testify If Immunized •/BIG> Bennett: No 'Distinguishing Characteristics' •/BIG> Clinton Replies To Thompson •/BIG> Jackson Named U.S. Envoy To Africa •/BIG> House Approves Abortion Ban Bill •/BIG> Maine Gov.
