We first look at NCLC’s legislative priorities, which include a 36% national interest rate cap and credit reporting reform, and the prospects for Congressional action. Ms. Saunders then provides NCLC’s perspective on areas of potential CFPB regulatory action including overdraft and other fees labeled “junk fees” by the CFPB, earned wage access programs, buy-now-pay later products, income share agreements, the use of artificial intelligence in underwriting and collections, fraud in peer-to-peer payment services, the use of unfairness to challenge non-credit discrimination, and mandatory arbitration.

Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation.
