Koehler Reports on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Hearing
Mike Koehler of the FCPA Professor Blog has an interesting post on the House hearing regarding the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Mike notes, "The hearing focused on a wide range of issues and in many ways was similar to FCPA reform hearings in the 1980's in that a common theme explored during the hearing was whether the current state of FCPA enforcement harms U.S. business." Mike continues, "There is clearly a push to introduce FCPA reform legislation and members of both parties appeared receptive (to at least certain) FCPA reform proposals . . . ." Given the increasing importance of the FCPA, it's little surprise that Congress is again considering amending the Act. Given the depth of Mike's expertise on the Act, his post is worth a read.
