Kraninger signals CFPB plans
In oral and written testimony given yesterday before the House Financial Services Committee, CFPB Director Kathleen Kraninger reported that the Bureau plans to move away from the 43 percent debt-to-income ratio requirement in the qualified mortgage rule, and will propose an alternative such as pricing thresholds to better ensure that responsible, affordable mortgage credit remains available for consumers. The Bureau expects to issue a proposal on changes to the QM rule in May 2020.
Kraninger reported that the Bureau is evaluating comments received on its proposal to rescind the underwriting portions of its Payday Lending rule. She also reported progress on the Bureau's evaluation of comments relating to the EGRRCPA requirement that the Bureau prescribe regulations under the Truth in Lending Act for residential property assessed clean energy (PACE) loans. Also under review are approximately 100 comments received on the Bureau's proposed amendments to the Remittance Rule (subpart B of Regulation E), and comments on the Bureau's proposed rule to implement the requirements applicable to debit collectors under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
