    So this ends up being another needless law that requires companies to to extensive work reporting something that the bad guys have already found a way around.

    It didn't start out that way. There were punishment clauses and a mandate to create an independent body to review the companies being reported to ensure they weren't just laundering fronts. But then Republican happened and it was defanged and defunded.

    Your tax dollars at work.
