The House Financial Services Committee will meet at 10 a.m. on Thursday to discuss and begin voting on several CFPB reform bills.
The bills include measures to create a separate CFPB inspector general, apply sunshine rules to CFPB advisory board meetings, create a small business advisory board within the bureau, require the CFPB to disclose data underlying its findings, create an opt-out mechanism for consumers who do not want the bureau to collect their data and require a notice-and-comment process for CFPB guidance.
The House panel will also consider a six-month moratorium on FSOC designations, a bill to increase transparency at the FSOC and subpoenas related to Justice Department settlements with financial institutions. The Senate will be in recess this week for Memorial Day.
