Join FACT and the Hudson Institute for an in-person, Senate briefing on September 28th to learn about the scale of the problem posed by professional “enablers” and the future of this crucial reform agenda.
The United States could be moving one step closer to freedom from its role as an enabler of global kleptocracy. Two weeks ago, lawmakers in the House Armed Services Committee voted to include the ENABLERS Act in this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The bipartisan reforms in the Act would enlist certain professional service providers – the financial gatekeepers on the front lines of the U.S.’ anti-money laundering defense – into the fight against kleptocracy by instituting common sense procedures to detect, flag, and prevent the laundering of corrupt and criminal funds.
The Financial Accountability and Corporate Transparency (FACT) Coalition applauds the House Armed Services Committee for voting today to include the ENABLERS Act in the House version of the annual defense bill, known as the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 (the NDAA).
FACT Government Affairs Director Erica Hanichak spoke before the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control on ways legislators can deny drug traffickers and the corrupt officials they work with access to the U.S. financial system.
