False Claims Act

A staple of recent annual legislative sessions has been the introduction of a state equivalent to the federal False Claims Act (FCA), and one Pennsylvania lawmaker has said he plans to soon bring such a bill back to the floor for consideration.

But opinions remain divided on how that legislation will benefit the state.

Democratic Rep. Brandon Neuman said Feb. 28 that during the 2017-2018 Regular Session of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, he plans to reintroduce legislation to create the Taxpayer Protection Against Fraud Act – a measure aimed at reducing “waste, fraud and abuse” in state government.
