Kentucky Legislator Introduces False Claims Act Legislation

Kentucky’s Speaker of its House of Representatives, Greg Stumbo, announced that he was introducing false claims act legislation to give whistleblowers strong tools and incentives to expose misuse of state dollars.  Stumbo supported his legislation by pointing to other states, such as California and Texas, that have successfully prosecuted cases under their own false claims acts.  Recently, Kentucky was denied the right to intervene in a false claims act case pending in Pittsburgh because Kentucky did not have its own false claims act pursuant to which the state could recover.
