U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Dick Durbin announced new legislation requiring corporations to "Pay What You Owe Before You Go" – settling their U.S. tax bill before relocating to a foreign country.

While it is critical that we reach a long-term solution that reforms our international corporate tax code by implementing a global minimum tax and reducing the statutory tax rate, this bill is an immediate, commonsense measure to ensure businesses settle up before leaving the U.S." Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott (ABT), Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV) and Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN).
