U.S. PIRG Senate Floor Letter Opposing Bank Deregulation Bill S2155

This week, the Senate will consider S2155 on the floor. The bi-partisan bill led by Mike Crapo (ID) and Mark Warner (VA) rolls back big bank safety and soundness rules and exempts 85% of all banks from compliance with laws protecting consumers from mortgage fraud, racial discrimination and other consumer protections. In an effort to supposedly balance the bill's deregulatory bent, it includes a weak free credit freeze provision that preempts stronger state law efforts.

As case rates and hospitalizations increase across several states, it’s imperative that Congress plugs the glaring holes in our medical supply chain now.

Group Letter To Congress On Credit Scoring

Letter from U.S. PIRG and other groups making it clear that their general letter on credit scoring competition, sent to Federal Housing Finance Agency director Mel Watt in 2014, did not mean that they supported inclusion of Section 310, a credit scoring amendment backed by the Big 3 credit bureaus, into S2155, the sweeping bank deregulation package in 2018, nor that it meant they supported the bill itself, which they all oppose.
