Seems like every year the Jaggers say these things

The government wants to fast-track the passage of the long delayed anti-money laundering legislation, which has been under review for nearly two years.

President Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday told a press briefing at State House that he has urged Finance Minister Dr. Ashni Singh to wrap up the discussions on the legislation at the level of the parliamentary select committee set up to review it.

The special select committee was created by the Parliament in June 2007 to examine the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Finance of Terrorism Bill, but only started work a year later. Dr. Singh is chair of the committee.
