One of the final bills expected to pass this year, the annual National Defense Authorization Act, will include legislation that would require millions of business entities to reveal their owners to the federal government. The legislation, long worked for by New York Representative Carolyn Maloney, is an attempt to deter the use of anonymous shell companies by criminals evading anti-money laundering rules.

This significant anti-corruption reform would rein in the use of shell companies in the U.S., some of which have allowed drug traffickers, terrorists, and foreign adversaries to operate freely. They have also been used by some of the world’s rich and powerful —world leaders, celebrities, business titans — to hide their wealth.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has supported the legislation and was personally involved in negotiations, although for some lawmakers there remain contentious issues on the transparency.
