                human trafficking.''.

                          Purpose and Summary

    On April 27, 2017, Representative Ed Royce introduced H.R. 
2219, the ``End Banking for Human Traffickers Act'' to help law 
enforcement and financial institutions identify and report 
suspected human traffickers so they can be prosecuted to the 
fullest extent of the law. The legislation will add the 
Secretary of the Treasury to the President's Interagency Task 
Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking (``Task Force''), 
require the task force to submit recommendations to Congress to 
revise anti-money laundering (AML) programs to specifically 
target money laundering related to human trafficking, require 
the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) 
to review and enhance procedures to improve AML programs to 
target human trafficking operations, and require the State 
Department to report on efforts to eliminate money laundering 
related to human trafficking and the number of investigations, 
arrests, indictments, and convictions in money laundering cases 
related to human trafficking.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    H.R. 2219, the ``End Banking for Human Traffickers Act'' is 
bipartisan and bicameral legislation that will aid both law 
enforcement and financial institutions identify and report 
suspected human traffickers so that the Department of Justice 
can prosecute these individuals to the full extent of the law. 
Upon introduction of H.R. 2219, Representative Royce stated, 
``[h]uman trafficking has devastated the lives of tens of 
millions of victims around the world, including here in the 
United States. . . . The End Banking for Human Traffickers Act 
will help law enforcement and financial institutions identify 
and report suspected human traffickers so that they can be 
prosecuted to the full extent of the law.''
    The massive international problem of human trafficking 
encompasses many diverse forms of exploitation. Human 
trafficking has been among the fastest growing forms of 
transnational crime because current world conditions have 
created increased demand and supply, migration flows have been 
enormous and illicit trade has been hidden within the massive 
flow of people around the world. People can be trafficked for 
sex, or trafficked for labor exploitation, marriage, begging, 
for service as child soldiers, and for their organs. Supply and 
demand have created a flourishing business for traffickers. The 
scale of human trafficking is now significant; however, 
crafting an estimate of the number of people trafficked 
annually is difficult because of the covert nature of the 
activity.
    The United States has led the international effort to 
eliminate trafficking in persons, particularly with its 
enactment of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection 
Act of 2000 (PL 106-386). A key requirement of the law was for 
the Secretary of State to release an annual Trafficking in 
Persons (TIP) report, in which the Department of State would 
develop a ranking system for countries. According to the June 
2017 report, there were only 14,894 prosecutions and 9,071 
convictions for trafficking globally in 2016, which is 
alarmingly low. According to a September 2017 report from the 
International Labor Organization (ILO), it is estimated that 
40.3 million people were victims of human trafficking in 2016, 
24.9 million of which were in forced labor, with the Asia-
Pacific region accounting for the largest number.
    Human trafficking is also big business--it earns profits of 
roughly $150 billion a year for traffickers, according to the 
ILO report from 2014--with approximately $99 billion coming 
from commercial sex exploitation and another $51 billion from 
forced economic exploitation. One of the bill's original 
cosponsors, Representative Carolyn Maloney acknowledged the 
profitably of human trafficking as ``[i]t is a multibillion 
dollar criminal industry. Human traffickers are holding people 
captive, degrading their humanity and selling victims and their 
bodies over and over again--and making huge profits. They are 
using our financial institutions to launder illegal income.''
    According to the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, 
Jr., ``[h]uman trafficking, at its core, is a business. Like 
other businesses, it leaves a financial paper trail that can be 
tracked and used to identify trafficking networks.'' Many 
entities have identified financial activities and patterns that 
may indicate that an individual or business is involved in 
human trafficking, and this bill will go a long way to urge 
financial services officials to be aware of and report those 
red flags.

                                Hearings

    The Committee on Financial Services Subcommittee on 
Terrorism and Illicit Finance and Subcommittee on Financial 
Institutions and Consumer Credit held a joint legislative 
hearing examining H.R. 2219 on November 29, 2017.

                        Committee Consideration

    The Committee on Financial Services met in open session on 
December 12 and 13, 2017, and ordered H.R. 2219 to be reported 
favorably to the House as amended by a recorded vote of 59 yeas 
to 0 nays (Record vote no. FC-121), a quorum being present. 
Before the motion to report was offered, the Committee adopted 
an amendment offered by Mr. Royce by voice vote.

                            Committee Votes

    Clause 3(b) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives requires the Committee to list the record votes 
on the motion to report legislation and amendments thereto. The 
sole recorded vote was on a motion by Chairman Hensarling to 
report the bill favorably to the House as amended. The motion 
was agreed to by a recorded vote of 59 yeas to 0 nays (Record 
vote no. FC-121), a quorum being present.


                      Committee Oversight Findings

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(1) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the findings and recommendations of 
the Committee based on oversight activities under clause 
2(b)(1) of rule X of the Rules of the House of Representatives, 
are incorporated in the descriptive portions of this report.

                    Performance Goals and Objectives

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(4) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee states that H.R. 2219 
will help law enforcement and financial institutions identify 
and report suspected human traffickers so that they can be 
prosecuted to the full extent of the law by amending Section 
105(b) of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection 
Act of 2000 (22 U.S.C. 7103(b)) to add the Secretary of the 
Treasury to the President's Interagency Task Force to Monitor 
and Combat Trafficking. H.R. 2219 will also help achieve this 
goal by amending Section 110(b) Victims of Trafficking and 
Violence Protection Act of 2000 (22 U.S.C. 7107(b)) to require 
the State Department to report on efforts to eliminate money 
laundering related to human trafficking and the number of 
investigations, arrests, indictments, and convictions in money 
laundering cases related to human trafficking.

   New Budget Authority, Entitlement Authority, and Tax Expenditures

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee adopts as its 
own the estimate of new budget authority, entitlement 
authority, or tax expenditures or revenues contained in the 
cost estimate prepared by the Director of the Congressional 
Budget Office pursuant to section 402 of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974.

                 Congressional Budget Office Estimates

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(3) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the following is the cost estimate 
provided by the Congressional Budget Office pursuant to section 
402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                 Washington, DC, February 15, 2018.
Hon. Jeb Hensarling,
Chairman, Committee on Financial Services,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 2219, the End 
Banking for Human Traffickers Act of 2017.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Stephen 
Rabent.
            Sincerely,
                                                Keith Hall,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 2219--End Banking for Human Traffickers Act of 2017

    H.R. 2219 would require the existing Interagency Task Force 
to Monitor and Combat Trafficking (Interagency Task Force) to 
recommend methods to combat money laundering related to human 
trafficking and to submit those recommendations to the Congress 
and federal banking agencies. Under the bill, the Department of 
the Treasury would be required to designate an office to 
coordinate efforts to combat the financing of human 
trafficking.
    Using information about the costs of preparing similar 
reports, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost 
less than $500,000 over the 2018-2022 period to develop the 
analysis and recommendations required under the bill. Such 
spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated 
funds.
    H.R. 2219 also would direct the Federal Financial 
Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) to review and evaluate 
examination procedures for financial institutions regarding 
efforts to counter money laundering and the detection of 
financial transactions related to human trafficking. Using 
information from the affected financial regulatory agencies, 
CBO estimates that reviewing and evaluating the procedures 
would cost $1 million over the 2018-2020 period.
    Review and evaluation costs incurred by the Federal Deposit 
Insurance Corporation, the National Credit Union 
Administration, and the Office of the Comptroller of the 
Currency are recorded in the budget as increases in direct 
spending, but those agencies are authorized to collect premiums 
and fees from the financial institutions they regulate to cover 
such administrative expenses. Thus, CBO estimates enacting H.R. 
2219 would increase net direct spending by a negligible amount 
over the 2018-2020 period.
    Review and evaluation costs incurred by the Federal Reserve 
System, also an FFIEC member, to implement the bill would 
reduce remittances to the Treasury, which are recorded in the 
budget as revenues. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2219 would 
decrease revenues by less than $500,000 over the 2018-2020 
period.
    Because H.R. 2219 would affect direct spending and 
revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures apply.
    CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2219 would not 
significantly increase net direct spending or on-budget 
deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods 
beginning in 2028.
    H.R. 2219 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
    On February 15, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 
2219, the End Banking for Human Traffickers Act of 2017, as 
ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on 
December 14, 2017. The two bills are similar and CBO's 
estimates of their budgetary effects are the same.
    The CBO staff contacts for this estimate are Stephen Rabent 
(for the FFIEC and the Treasury) and Sunita D'Monte (for the 
Interagency Task Force). The estimate was approved by H. Samuel 
Papenfuss, Deputy Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.

                       Federal Mandates Statement

    This information is provided in accordance with section 423 
of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.
    The Committee has determined that the bill does not contain 
Federal mandates on the private sector. The Committee has 
determined that the bill does not impose a Federal 
intergovernmental mandate on State, local, or tribal 
governments.

                      Advisory Committee Statement

    No advisory committees within the meaning of section 5(b) 
of the Federal Advisory Committee Act were created by this 
legislation.

                  Applicability to Legislative Branch

    The Committee finds that the legislation does not relate to 
the terms and conditions of employment or access to public 
services or accommodations within the meaning of the section 
102(b)(3) of the Congressional Accountability Act.

                         Earmark Identification

    With respect to clause 9 of rule XXI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee has carefully reviewed 
the provisions of the bill and states that the provisions of 
the bill do not contain any congressional earmarks, limited tax 
benefits, or limited tariff benefits within the meaning of the 
rule.

                    Duplication of Federal Programs

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(5) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee states that no 
provision of the bill establishes or reauthorizes: (1) a 
program of the Federal Government known to be duplicative of 
another Federal program; (2) a program included in any report 
from the Government Accountability Office to Congress pursuant 
to section 21 of Public Law 111-139; or (3) a program related 
to a program identified in the most recent Catalog of Federal 
Domestic Assistance, published pursuant to the Federal Program 
Information Act (Pub. L. No. 95-220, as amended by Pub. L. No. 
98-169).

                   Disclosure of Directed Rulemaking

    Pursuant to section 3(i) of H. Res. 5, (115th Congress), 
the following statement is made concerning directed rule 
makings: The Committee estimates that the bill requires no 
directed rulemakings within the meaning of such section.
