Testimony of Paul Leonard on Rulemaking for Payday

May 6, 2015
Testimony
Testimony by Paul Leonard from the May 6, 2015 Informational Hearing on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Rulemaking for Payday, Vehicle Title and Similar Loans before the California Senate Banking Committee. The CFPB aims to cover payday and similar loans under its rule regardless of the provider or channel offering the loans (storefront and online; bank/credit union, non-depository, tribal entity). The Bureau’s proposal would create a single consistent regulatory floor, while maintaining the prerogative of states to strengthen its consumer protections as they see fit.
