If two U.S. Senators want to be taken seriously when discussing the general topic of corruption and specifically the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, they need to get a few basic things right.
Such as the year in which the law they are talking about was passed.
However, in this piece Senators Roger Wicker and Ben Cardin states: “The FCPA, passed in 1973, makes it illegal for a U.S. business to pay a bribe abroad and collects enormous fines and penalties every year—often in the billions of dollars.”
For the record, the FCPA was passed in 1977.
