As you know, the comittee on Banking, Finance and Urban
Affairs has legislative jurisdiction over the Bank Secrecy
Act (the Act).

On March 5, 1985, the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions Supervision, Regulation anċ insurance invited then Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Enforcement and Operations John M. Walker, Jr., and James D. Harmon, Jr., Executive Director of the President's Commission on Organized Crime, to brief the members of the Subcommittee on the state of compliance with the Act, on the efforts the Departmen: of the Treasury was engaged in to enforce the Act, and on suggestions for ch es in the law to enhance the Government's ability to carry out the Act.

The briesing was very helpful to the members of the Subcommittee. The briefing was foliowed in April by this Subcommittee's extensive investigations of the failure of the Bank of Boston and other Massachusetts banks to comply with the reporting requirements of the Act, as well as the institutional failure of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency relative to their responsibilities under this law.

The Subcommittee intends to continue its review of the Act, examine suggested legislative changes, further inquire about the state of compliance by financial institutions, and possibly to conduct oversight hearings on the enforcement efforts that your Department and the banking regulators have undertaken since the Subcommittee's initiative last March.

In that regard, the Subcommittee would appreciate a comprehensive written report updating the activities and initiatives the Department anë, specifically, the Office of Enforcement and Operations, have undertaken to see that
