In an effort to curtail criminal enterprises and money laundering, the federal government has enacted laws over the years to prevent those involved in criminal enterprises from using financial institutions such as a banks and brokerage houses to clean their money. The following federal laws were passed to assist federal authorities and prosecutors in the fight against money laundering: The Money Laundering Control Act of 1986, the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 and the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988. In addition to the federal measures added to curtail money laundering, 36 states have also enacted legislature to combat the increasingly popular crime.
