AFSA Statement on Financial Product Safety Commission Act

WASHINGTON, March 4, 2015...“AFSA applauds Rep. Randy Neugebauer, chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit, for introducing the Financial Product Safety Commission Act of 2015, which calls for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to be governed by a five-member bipartisan commission rather than a sole director.

AFSA supports reforms to the CFPB’s governance that will encourage a dynamic consumer credit marketplace and promote access to affordable credit.

Being overseen by a commission will bring more accountability to the Bureau, to the benefit of the American people.”
