WASHINGTON - The Treasury and Justice departments issued a fleshed-out strategy Wednesday to combat money laundering, including new reporting requirements for some nonbanks and more details on potential guidelines for helping bankers spot financial criminals.

The strategy included an announcement that the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a unit of the Treasury Department, had issued a final rule requiring money service businesses - such as check cashers, money transmitters, and currency dealers - to submit suspicious activity reports. By yearend, the Treasury is to issue additional reporting rules for casinos and card clubs, and it expects the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a proposed rule for reporting suspect activities by securities broker/dealers.
