On May 5, 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice announced in its initiatives to strengthen its efforts and provide additional tools to advance its anti-corruption work, the department will submit to Congress proposals for legislative amendments in two areas:  first, regarding the illegal proceeds of transnational corruption; and second, regarding substantive corruption offenses. Also on May 6, 2016, the Obama Administration announced several important steps to combat money laundering, corruption, and tax evasion, and called upon Congress to take additional action to address these critical issues.
