CFPB Spring 2018 rulemaking agenda contains significant changes under Mulvaney’s leadership

The CFPB’s Spring 2018 rulemaking agenda has been published by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) as part of its Spring 2018 Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions.  (OIRA is part of the Office of Management and Budget.)  It represents the CFPB’s first rulemaking agenda that reflects the CFPB’s rulemaking plans under the Trump Administration and Mick Mulvaney’s leadership.  The agenda’s preamble indicates that the information in the agenda is current as of March 15, 2018 and identifies the regulatory matters that the Bureau “reasonably anticipates…having under consideration during the period from May 1, 2018, to April 30, 2019.”
