ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota and IRS officials are schooling those who handle the cash on how to avoid money laundering.

An anti-money laundering seminar hosted Wednesday by the state Commerce Department and the Internal Revenue Service will teach small business owners, bank compliance officers and check cashers about state and federal laws.

A special IRS agent will also talk about criminal cases involving money laundering.

State Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman says the training aims to help convenience stores, banks and others who transmit money.

The seminar at a St. Paul library is fully booked.
