For Immediate Release

MASSPIRG Commends President for Renomination of Richard Cordray to Head CFPB

Statement of MASSPIRG Legislative Director Deirdre Cummings on the President’s renomination of Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau:

"MASSPIRG commends President Obama for his renomination of the well-qualified Richard Cordray to a full term as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

“The CFPB is the nation's first financial regulator with only one job — to protect consumers in the marketplace. The Senate should reject demands by opponents of consumer protection to condition Cordray's approval on the gutting of the agency's authority or on the removal of its independent funding.

“Consumers and taxpayers need a strong CFPB to help prevent another Wall Street-caused financial and economic disaster enabled by weak or nonexistent regulation."

Defend the CFPB

Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
