The Justice Department would be required to report False Claims Act settlements and other information to Congress on a semi-annual basis, under legislation introduced in the Senate Judiciary Committee by Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a senior member of the committee. Grassley, who helped rewrite the Civil War-era False Claims Act for the modern age, said the information "would shed light on new opportunities" to use the act to its full potential and "help correct any problems there might be in the current system." The Justice Department's inspector general would be required to report False Claims Act cases, civil investigative demands, corporate integrity agreements, estimated damages, total recoveries and settlement calculation formulas, among other information. -- by Mark Taylor
