WASHINGTON (11/25/14)--A semiannual update of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's rulemaking agenda has been published by the agency. Federal agencies are required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act to publish regulatory agendas twice a year.
The CFPB's complete Fall 2014 rulemaking agenda includes all rulemaking actions in the pre-rule, proposed rule, final rule, long-term actions and completed actions stages.
Current highlights of the agenda are:
"We're continuing research, analysis and outreach on a number of other consumer financial services markets, and will update our next semiannual agenda to reflect the results of further prioritization and planning," wrote Kelly Cochran, acting assistant director for mortgage markets in a post on the CFPB's blog.
Also notable, any action regarding overdraft protection plans and related services is just in the initial pre-rule stage, and therefore a proposal is not imminent.
