The 1986 False Claims  Act amendments championed by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Howard Berman (D-CA) remain America’s most successful fraud-fighting tool, recovering billions of dollars every year.  The law has not only copied by the states, but strengthened several times thanks to continued bipartisan support on Capitol Hill, most notably in 2009 when Senator Grassley and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) initiated legislation to close loopholes knocked into the law by lawyers working for fraudster defense and healthcare contractors.
