AFR and partners led a letter opposing a set of financial institution bills scheduled for markup tomorrow, May 17th in the House. Title I of the first bill (H.R. 8337) is particularly egregious and would result in ~100 banking organizations being removed from CFPB oversight, among other negative consequences for Qualified mortgage requirements, the Durbin amendment cap, the Volcker rule and others. H.R. 758 compromises safety and soundness standards while not addressing the root causes of de novo bank challenges.
