Criminal division to be investigated.

A 1992 law ordered the Internal Revenue Service's criminal investigation division (CID) to be studied by a committee, in part because of allegations of criminal activity and abuses by CID employees. The committee must examine CID management and policies and report its findings to Congress no later than July 6, 1993.

The 12 committee members were named by the IRS last October. Many are IRS officials and the committee is chaired by Commissioner Shirley Peterson. Members not associated with the IRS include a U.S. Customs official, an assistant attorney general and a professor.
