Bipartisan House Bill Seeks to Thwart CFPB's Attack on Auto Financing

NADA applauds the continued bipartisan efforts in Congress to rescind a flawed guidance from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that would harm consumers by limiting their ability to obtain discounted auto financing. Reps. Frank Guinta (R-N.H.) and Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) have introduced H.R. 1737, the Reforming CFPB Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act of 2015. The legislation would repeal a CFPB bulletin from 2013 that was designed to pressure lending institutions into eliminating the availability of auto financing discounts. These discounts save consumers millions of dollars every year. With the CFPB's actions likely to raise the cost of credit for car buyers, Congress should pass H.R. 1737 to rescind the CFPB's flawed auto finance guidance and make the Bureau more transparent and accountable when issuing future auto finance guidance.
