Senators Introduce Updates to False Claims Act
Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) are sponsoring new legislation called the False Claims Act Correction Act of 2007. It is supported by Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) and Ranking Member Arlen Specter (R-Pennsylvania).
The new legislation aims to improve conditions for whistleblowers who want to report fraud against the federal government using the False Claims Act, which has recovered over $20 billion for the U.S. Treasury.
The legislation makes a variety of corrections to the False Claims Act, including the removal of the requirement that all false claims be presented directly to a government employee.
Companion legislation is being brought forward to the U.S. House of Representatives by Representative Howard Berman.
