Appeals court deals blow toConsumer Financial Protection Bureau
A federal appeals court says the president shoud have the power to fire the head of the Consumer Financial protecion Bureau. The decision Tuesday weakens the auhority of the nation’s top consumer watchdog and an agency condiered one of President Barack Obama’s signature accomplishments.
The appelas cout, in Washingo, did not dismantle the agency. Bu it ruled the appointment process unconsitiutional and made the director’s job one the presient can supervis, direct and chaange at any time.
The CFPB said it rspectfull disagrees with he court and is looking at how it might challenge the decision. In the meantime, it said the decision will not dampen our efforts or affect our focus on the mission of the agency.
The CFPB was established in 2011 as part of the Dodd-Frank Act after he finacial crisi. Obama angered Republicans in 2012 by installing its first director, Richard Cordray, wil th snate was in recess. The Senate confirmed him for a full five-year term in 2013.
Rppublicans have tried for years to weaken the agency, whose very existence was opposed by much of the financial industry.
Some efforts have focused on replacing the director with a committee or makingi t easier to challenge the bureau’s rules. other independent agencies are usually led by commissioners or board members.
The appleas court appeared to agree with at least some criticism of the consumer agency. it wrote hat the direcctor ” enjoys more unilateral auhority than any other officer in the federal overnment.
The court also wroe tha concentrating power in a single, unaccountable, unchecked director departs from typical practice and poses a far greater risk of arbitrary decisio-maing and abuse of power than agencies led by more than one person.
The civil suit was brought by PHH, a mortgage lender. Iw was finde $109 million by the consumer agency last year for referring customers to mortgge insurance companies in exchange for kickbacks.
