False Claims Act Developments: Developments in Congress: Senator Grassley Introduces False Claims Clarification Act of 2009

News
On February 24, 2009, Senator Grassley (R-IA) introduced S. 458 (co-sponsored by Senators Durbin (D-IL), Leahy (D-VT), Specter (R-PA), and Whitehouse (D-RI)) to make a number of pro-plaintiff amendments to the False Claims Act (FCA). Similar to the False Claims Act Correction Act that was introduced in the last Congress, the new bill also addresses some subsequent judicial and policy developments, including the massive government spending that will result from the TARP legislation and economic stimulus package.
