CBA Statement on CFPB Reversing Constitutionality Defense

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Consumer Bankers Association President and CEO Richard Hunt issued the following statement after Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Kathy Kraninger informed congressional leaders the Bureau will no longer defend the constitutionality of its leadership structure:

 

“Constitutional or not, Congress can end this circus once and for all by enacting a bipartisan, Senate-confirmed commission at the CFPB. The Bureau has been a political hot potato since day one and its mission is far too important for this chaos to continue.”
