On Wednesday, September 10, the House Financial Services Committee will hold a hearing entitled “An Overview of the Credit Reporting System.” The scheduled witnesses are:

  • Stuart Pratt, President and Chief Executive Officer, Consumer Data Industry Association
  • J. Howard Beales, Professor of Strategic Management and Public Policy, George Washington University
  • John A. Ikard, President and Chief Executive Offier, FirstBank Holding Company, on behalf of the American Bankers Association
  • Chi Chi Wu, Staff Attorney, National Consumer Law Center

Given that the CFPB has made credit reporting a priority, we find it surprising that the witness list does not include a CFPB representative.
