House FCA Amendment Bill Hearing

On Thursday, June 19, 2008, the House Judiciary Committee’s two Subcommittees, Commercial and Administrative Law and Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property, held a joint hearing on H.R. 4854, the “False Claims Act Correction Act”.  The questioning was cut short by a House vote, but the subcommittees seemed very favorable to recommending the amendment.  Indeed, the Chairman, who had sponsored the 1986 Amendments to the FCA, told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce representative that it seemed ironic that he strongly supported the 1986 version now, because his predecessor in 1986 had the same doomsday predictions about that amendment as this current representative presented in his testimony about the current amendment.
