Messer Introduces Art And Antiquities Trafficking Prevention Act

U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) recently introduced legislation to stop money laundering and end criminal finance schemes carried out by terrorist organizations and organized crime groups.
The Illicit Art and Antiquities Trafficking Prevention Act would add art and antiquities to the list of businesses subject to anti-money laundering rules. Currently, dealers in art or antiquities are not required to file reports that help identify money laundering, which makes it easier for criminals and terrorist organizations to traffic art and antiquities.
