Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
An optional early step in CFPB rulemaking. Used to get initial public input on certain key aspects of potential rulemakings.
The Bureau seeks comment on proposed amendments to Regulation V, which would establish a method for a victim of trafficking to submit documentation identifying any adverse item of information about the consumer that resulted from certain types of human trafficking and prohibit the consumer reporting agencies from furnishing a consumer report containing the adverse item(s) of information.
The Bureau is proposing certain amendments to the final rule implementing these requirements, including exemptions for certain nonprofit creditors and certain homeownership stabilization programs and an additional definition of a qualified mortgage for certain loans made and held in portfolio by small creditors.
