Under the leadership of Mick Mulvaney and Kathy Kraninger, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau significantly scaled back its rule-making and supervisory abilities. Each has taken steps to rollback regulations, dismissed enforcement actions, threatened to remove public access to data and more. As advocates, we can help restore the integrity of the Bureau by calling on Congress to put consumers ahead of financial institutions.
The Consumers First Act (H.R. 1500), a bill introduced by Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA-43), would restore the strength and authority of the Bureau by undoing the harmful actions taken by Mick Mulvaney and Kathy Kraninger to undermine the agency’s work and mission. This bill will be up for a vote as soon as tomorrow, May 22nd. Please take a moment to call your Representative and ask them to vote YES for H.R. 1500.

"My name is friend and I’m a constituent of yours residing here in your state. I’m calling to request that you vote YES on the Consumers First Act (H.R. 1500), a bill introduced by Representative Maxine Waters to protect the CFPB. The Act would restore the strength and authority of the Bureau by undoing the actions taken by Mick Mulvaney and Kathy Kraninger to undermine the Bureau’s work and mission. When the CFPB was operating under its mission, it returned over $12 billion directly to consumers who were harmed by predatory financial practices. Following recent leadership changes, the Bureau has weakened its enforcement actions. We need a strong CFPB that puts consumers ahead of financial institutions. Please vote YES on H.R. 1500 when it comes up for a vote this week!"
