More DAs, Labor Unions Support NY’s Pioneering LLC Transparency Act


Law enforcement support for the LLC Transparency Act continues to grow. Last week Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez and Bronx DA Darcel Clark joined a roster of prominent law enforcers that includes Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg and State Attorney General Tish James. 

Labor support for LLC transparency also continues to grow, as both 1199SEIU and the New York AFL-CIO announced their backing in Gothamist. Along with law enforcement and major labor unions, LLC Transparency is supported by dozens of state and national anti-corruption, transparency, tenants’ rights, and social welfare groups. 

The LLC Transparency Act (S995-B (Hoylman-Sigal) / A3484-A (Gallagher)) was passed this year by the state Legislature earlier this year and requires secretive Limited Liability Companies to reveal who their actual owners are. LLCs are a key legal tool used by money-launderers, narco-traffickers, and unethical employers and landlords to hide their identities.
