Legislation introduced to reward whistleblowers who save tax dollars

With the twin goals of rooting out fraud and reducing the state’s deficit by potentially millions of dollars, Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo announced Tuesday he is filing legislation that would give whistleblowers strong financial incentive to step forward if state tax dollars are being misused. He noted that the act has a long history in our country, dating back to the Civil War. The Federal Government created a new False Claims Act in 1986, and now more than two dozen states have their own version.
