Letter Opposing House Effort To Hobble Bank Regulators

Today, the House Financial Services Committee holds a cattle-call markup of bills designed to  weaken consumer, taxpayer, depositor and investor protections. As it often does, it claims its efforts are on behalf of small banks and credit unions. But the goal of the Tailor Act is not really to help them, it is to weaken the broad authority regulators have to protect the public. Oh, and they are already required to "tailor" regulations for small or rural banks and credit unions.

Copy of U.S. PIRG's Complaint, Lawsuit over FTC Action on Unsafe Cars

You’d think that a car dealer couldn’t say that a used car is “safe” if that car is subject to a safety recall (like the Takata airbag recall or the GM ignition switch recall). But, because of a recent action taken by the Federal Trade Commission, used car dealers can do just that. In response, U.S. PIRG and other leading car safety advocacy groups—Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS) and the Center for Auto Safety—have sued the FTC and are asking the court to invalidate the FTC’s action. The complaint is available below.
