AFSA Participates in an SBA Roundtable on Small Business Lending July 6, 2017 Last week, AFSA staff attended a small business roundtable at the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy. Participants discussed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) mortgage servicing rules, qualified mortgage rule, and request for information about the small business lending market. Industry representatives were joined by several people from the CFPB. In addition to last week’s roundtable, the Office of Advocacy will be hosting Idaho Regulatory Reform Roundtables in Boise and Coeur d’Alene this month. The purpose of these roundtables is to help identify specific regulatory barriers to small business growth through first-hand testimony and thereby assist federal agencies in complying with the president’s directive to eliminate burdensome regulations. The roundtables will be on July 11 in Boise and Coeur d’Alene on July 13. The Office of Advocacy has also established an online form for small businesses who have regulatory issues they'd like to share.
