This might sound stupid, but I am curious about the implications of the new law that, if passed, will increase IRA maximum contributions to $5K per year. I think that I can now increase my Roth IRA contribution to 5K per year if this is passed. Will this affect what I can contribute to my 401K, or vice-versa?

No. IRAs and 401(k)'s will continue to have independent contribution limits.
