CFPB Solicits Input on Collecting Info from State Agency Actions
December 5, 2011
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is seeking public input on its plans to collect information about legal actions filed by state officials under authority granted in Section 1042(a) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This section of the law grants state attorneys general and state regulators the authority to bring legal actions against financial institutions to enforce provisions of Title X of Dodd-Frank and its implementing regulations. Back in July, the CFPB put out an interim final rule laying out the notification procedures regarding state legal action taken. The interim final rule establishes that notice should be provided at least 10 days before the filing of an action, with certain exceptions, and sets forth a limited set of information which is to be provided with the notice.
