Statement on the False Claims Amendment Act
The DC Chamber of Commerce is the voice of the business community and we have a longstanding history of successfully advocating on behalf of our more than 1000 member companies while upholding the pillars of truth and honesty in all of our statements and communications. Our position on the False Claims Amendment Act has been misrepresented. We support responsible tax collection. There are provisions of the current bill that will have significant unintended consequences. We have proactively proposed amendments directly to the Chairman and DC Council as a remedy. Our hope is that the Chairman and Council incorporate these proposed amendments into the next version of the bill, which will safeguard upstanding residents and local businesses in the District of Columbia.
