New York's Mayor Bloomberg Vetos Whistle-Blower Bill
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has vetoed a bill that would let private citizens profit from blowing the whistle on fraudulent claims against the city. The New York City False Claims Act, which was modeled on a federal law credited with saving $12 billion since 1986, was determined by Bloomberg to be beyond the power of the City Council to impose without a public referendum. In his veto message, the mayor also said the measure could “impede ongoing investigations and prosecutions.” The City Council is expected to override the mayor’s veto and make the False Claims Act law.
