The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) which has as a mission “to protect consumers by carrying out federal consumer financial laws.” Among other things, they write rules, supervise companies, and enforce federal consumer financial protection laws; restrict unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices; take consumer complaints; promote financial education; research consumer behavior; monitor financial markets for new risks to consumers, and enforce laws that outlaw discrimination and other unfair treatment in consumer finance.
As a member of the Indiana Banker’s Association, Darrell and his colleagues work every day to ensure that the regulations that are enacted actually help consumers become homeowners rather than hinder the process with unintended consequences. The National Association of REALTORS and the National Association of Home Builders are heavily involved in the process as well.
