Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Under present law, a private citizen may file a civil lawsuit alleging that a party has made false claims for governmental money, but only upon specific approval by the state Attorney General. This bill would remove the requirement to obtain the AG's consent prior to filing such a lawsuit. As amended in House committee, a local government would receive notice of such lawsuits filed in that government's name.
