US Senate passes Warren's "Truth in Settlements Act" bill to require settlement details



"I’m glad the Senate unanimously passed the Truth in Settlements Act last night – my bipartisan bill with Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford to provide more transparency around government settlements. The idea behind this bill is straightforward: If the government is going to cut deals on behalf of the American people, the American people are entitled to know what kind of a deal they're getting. This legislation will shut down backroom deal-making and ensure that Congress, citizens and watchdog groups can hold regulatory agencies accountable for strong and effective enforcement that benefits the public interest." - Senator Elizabeth Warren
