Comments on Policy on No-Action Letters and the BCFP Product Sandbox Submitted to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Consumer groups filed comments in the CFPB docket on creating a national “sandbox” for financial services and on drastically changing the CFPB’s No-Action Letter policy. CEI joined NCLC and other national groups in a longer comment that includes a discussion of the Arizona experience so far with our Regulatory Sandbox Program. You can find that section at page 48-53 of the long comment linked below. The CFPB proposal came from Paul Watkins, formerly of the Arizona Office of Attorney General, who led their campaign to create a “sandbox” in Arizona.
