A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the Oregon False Claims Act, a bill that made its way through the house and the senate and was on its way to the governor's desk for signature.

The large number of inquiries I have received about the bill speaks volumes about the impact this law will have on contsruction contractors and how seriously folks in the industry need to take this piece of legislation.

Indeed, the governor signed the bill. So Oregon now has a state version of the Federal False Claims Act.

The law goes into effect January 1, 2010 and can be found at OR Laws Chapter 292.

So contractors (and subcontractors) that do public procurement work beware....
