Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Elise Stefanik and Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) introduced the Vladimir Putin Transparency Act. This bipartisan legislation instructs U.S. intelligence to collect and submit a report to Congress on Putin and his allies’ financial assets and secretive networks.
“Putin and his political allies seek to weaken democracies worldwide by consolidating their political control through unethical means,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I am proud to cosponsor this bill which aims to identify Putin and his allies for who they are: nefarious political actors undermining democracies.”
Rep. Stefanik and Rep. Demings also introduced the bipartisan Defend Against Russian Disinformation Act last Congress, which strengthens America’s response to Russian interference in our elections.
