Through this RFI, the CFPB seeks feedback on all discretionary aspects of the CFPB’s rulemaking processes, including current practices, timelines, and potential improvements in each stage of these processes. Commenters are asked, where possible, to include:

  • A discussion of both the positive and negative aspects of the CFPB’s rulemaking processes;
  • Suggestions that are specific to any potential updates or modifications to the CFPB’s rulemaking processes; and
