AAF Files Amicus Brief in National Small Business United v. Department of the Treasury

Advancing American Freedom led an amicus brief with over 13 other amici in National Small Business United v. Department of the Treasury, in which the Eleventh Circuit is considering a district court decision that held unconstitutional the Corporate Transparency Act which requires certain companies to disclose information about their beneficial owners to the Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

“The federal government of the United States increasingly seeks to make itself the custodian of unimaginable amounts of information about the American people, a power well beyond its constitutional design as a limited and enumerated government,” said AAF General Counsel J. Marc Wheat. “Corporate Transparency Act is beyond the power granted to Congress in the Commerce Clause of Article I, even as modified by the Necessary and Proper Clause. Such structural limitations of the Constitution, not the Bill of Rights, must be the primary source of security for the rights of the people.”
