Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection New England Meetings

 


Association President/CEO Paul Gentile invites member credit unions to join him for a local roundtable discussion with the federal Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. Amongst the jurisdiction of the Bureau is the authority to write consumer financial protection regulations and issue guidance that affects credit unions and the financial services industry. The Bureau is travelling to New England for a dialogue with credit unions and seeks to obtain direct comments from the industry. These meetings provide convenient opportunities for credit union leaders to discuss issues of concern and to have questions answered and/or concerns addressed.

Under Acting Director Mick Mulvaney, recent actions of the Bureau include the issuance of a statement on the implementation of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, a section of which amends the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act and requests for information on the consumer complaint and inquiry process. Updates on these and other recent activities, including market research, enforcement actions, financial education, student loans, consumer fraud and stakeholder engagement may be found at https://www.consumerfinance.gov/about-us/blog/ Additional background and a list of rulemakings and recommendations on changes the Bureau can make to its regulations on mortgage lending, remittances, and prepaid cards, as well as exemptions in its regulations for credit unions is available HERE.
