CFPB Republishes Regs E, P and Z

January 9, 2012

by: Bryan Cave

The CFPB is republishing regulations for which it is assuming authority from other agencies pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act and making technical and conforming changes to reflect the transfer of authority and other changes required by the act. Among others, the CFPB issued interim final rules with request for public comment for the Federal Reserve’s Regulation E (Electronic Fund Transfers, Regulation P (Privacy of Consumer Financial Information) and Regulation Z (Truth in Lending).

The preambles to the interim final rules state that the regulations do not impose any new substantive obligations on persons subject to the existing regulations as published by the Federal Reserve.

The interim final rules became effective Dec. 30, 2011. The Reg E interim final rule is available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-12-27/pdf/2011-31725.pdf; comments are due by Feb. 27, 2012. Reg P is available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-12-21/pdf/2011-31729.pdf; comments are due by Feb. 21, 2012. Reg Z is available at

GDP Rose 2.4% in Second Quarter

On Friday, the Commerce Department reported that U.S. gross domestic product rose at an annualized seasonally adjusted rate of 2.4% for the second quarter, indicating that the recovery has been weaker than previously expected. However, the report also indicated that business spending increased by 21.9% in the second quarter, compared with a 20.4% rise in the first three months. The figures highlight the contrast in the economy between company profits and the slower jobs market. The underlying inflation rate increased by 1.1% in the April-to-June period over the previous quarter. The consumer price index rose by only 0.1% in the second quarter, slowing sharply from a 2.1% gain in the first quarter. Gross domestic purchase prices rose 0.1%, after a 2.1% increase in the first quarter. The chain-weighted GDP price index increased by 1.8%, compared to 1.0% in the first three months.
