House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on Tuesday will tell House Republicans that he plans floor votes before the August recess on a slew of bills in response to the IRS controversies.

The most intriguing: a bill to allow Americans to record conversations between themselves and federal enforcement officials.

Cantor also plans a vote on prohibiting IRS implementation or enforcement of Obamacare.

A Cantor aide said the bills will “give Republicans members the ability to address the growing distrust of Washington emanating from recent scandals and stories, especially in the case of the IRS.”

Another bill in Cantor’s package would “require agency leadership approval and accountability for government conferences, putting an end to lavish vacation getaways for bureaucrats on the taxpayers’ dime.”

Other bills to be taken up in July would:

—allow federal agencies to put senior career officials on investigative leave, with or without pay, when they are under investigation for serious abuses;

—require development and implementation of customer service system at agencies, and link customer service performance to agency and employee reviews;

—require congressional approval of regulations that have a significant impact on the economy.
