According to CUNA News Now, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will work with legislators to address privacy notification issues through the regulatory process, CFPB Director Richard Cordray said during testimony.
Cordray made his remarks as he presented his agency's semiannual report before a House Financial Services Committee hearing.
During that hearing, Reps. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) and Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) asked Cordray to urge the Senate to pass its own version of privacy notice legislation.
Leutkemeyer and Sherman are co-sponsors of a privacy notification bill (H.R. 749) that passed the U.S. House in March.
A Senate privacy notification bill (S. 635) was introduced by Senate Banking subcommittee on financial institutions Chairman Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and committee member Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.). It has 28 co-sponsors.
