CFPB TO STAY OPEN DURING SHUTDOWN

  • The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is not part of the federal government shutdown, and will continue to operate for the foreseeable future. Because the CFPB is funded through the Federal Reserve Board and is not part of the Congressional appropriations process, it is not at risk of being closed during the current shutdown. Ironically, the CFPB’s funding process is something that Congressional Republicans have been trying to change for several years. Republicans want the CFPB’s budget to come under Congress’s control, so that they might have more power over the CFPB.
