Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives approved as part of the must-pass defense spending bill the “ENABLERS” Act. The Act requires certain professional service providers that are best positioned to act as “gatekeepers” to the U.S. financial system to adopt common sense anti-money laundering procedures that can help detect, flag, and prevent the laundering of corrupt and other criminal funds into the United States.
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).
