Letter from Attorneys General to the House Financial Services Committee to Improve Corporate Transparency
August 2, 2018
Dear Chairman Hensarling and Ranking Member Waters:
Thank you for your diligent work crafting legislation to improve corporate transparency by requiring companies to disclose the identities of individuals who control and profit from the company at the time of its incorporation. We write to express our support for this change, which would prevent these individuals from using anonymous shell companies to evade accountability,
and to convey the importance of making this information available to state and local enforcement.
