Title: Expansion of Special Information Sharing Procedures to Deter Money Laundering and Terrorist Activity.

Modification of the information sharing rules is a part of the Department of the Treasury's continuing effort to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing policies.
