September Compliance Roundup

We didn’t see a great deal of activity from state departments in September and nothing from the federal agencies or secondary market investors. That will likely change soon, as September saw the U.S. Senate confirming Rohit Chopra as the new Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Our compliance team will keep you abreast of relevant changes the new Director decides to make.

Government Compliance News
There were no changes required by the various states, federal regulators or investors in September. As a result, our compliance department was able to provide a thoughtful article on the important Supreme Court case Collins v. Yellin. 

The case centered on the constitutionality of certain portions of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) charter. The outcome and its impact on the industry are explored in this article.
