Peters is the chair of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, while Durbin is the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Warren herself welcomed the new bill supporters, stating: “Our expanding coalition shows that Congress is ready to take action – our bipartisan bill is the toughest proposal on the table cracking down on crypto’s illicit use and giving regulators more tools in their toolbox.”This bill has also been endorsed by Transparency International U.S., Global Financial Integrity, the National District Attorneys Association, the Major County Sheriffs of America, the National Consumer Law Center and the National Consumers League.Related: Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and Sam Altman talk AI regs in WashingtonWarren reintroduced the Digital Asset Anti-Money Laundering Act, along with Senators Joe Manchin, Roger Marshall and Lindsey Graham, in July 2023.
