Gottheimer’s provisions include: 

  • Investments for the Treasury’s Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence to counter criminal and terrorist groups by (1) improving blockchain analysis tools; (2) training on cryptocurrency-related investigations; and; (3) providing investigative support to reduce crimes involving ransomware attacks or the exploitation of cryptocurrency.
  • Deployment of a finance attaché to the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem to strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship.
