CBA Statement on Proposed CFPB HMDA Rules

Washington, D.C. (July 24, 2014) – CBA’s General Counsel, Steve Zeisel, released the following statement after the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued a proposal to expand Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data collection fields: 

“The CFPB’s proposal will substantially increase the amount of publicly available information financial institutions must report on home mortgages. CBA will provide comments on the proposal, to ensure any consumer privacy concerns and increased compliance costs do not outweigh the benefits of additional data reporting.”
