CFPB Issues Taskforce RFI
Posted March 27, 2020 by CUNA Advocacy

The CFPB issued an RFI today to assist its Taskforce on Federal Consumer Financial Law with determining recommendations on “harmonizing, modernizing, and updating the federal consumer financial laws.”

The Taskforce seeks public feedback to help identify areas of consumer protection on which it should focus its research and analysis during the balance of its one-year appointment.  The RFI seeks specific comments on the following topics:

  • expanding access to consumer financial products and services;
  • protection and use of consumer data;
  • regulations the Bureau writes and enforces; federal and state coordination; and
  • improving the market for consumer financial products and services. 

The comment period for the RFI will close 60 days after the date of its publication in the Federal Register.
