Consumerist: As Congress Preps To Scrap Prepaid Card Protections, Lawsuit Seeks Release Of Emails Between Lawmakers & Lobbyists
The Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit filed today by advocacy group Allied Progress asks a federal court in D.C. to compel the CFPB to turn over communications involving the pending prepaid card rules.
Rep. Hensarling has accepted at least $7.38 million from companies regulated by the CFPB, according to Allied Progress.
Hensarling’s revisions and original legislation targeting the CFPB aren’t entirely a surprise, as he — and the Financial Services Committee he leads — has strong ties to Wall Street and big banks, Allied Progress reports.
