The CFPB’s proposed payday loan rule and related Request for Information (RFI) were published in this past Friday’s Federal Register.  The RFI seeks feedback regarding consumer protection concerns pertaining to (1) loan products outside the scope of the proposed payday loan rule, and (2) “risky” credit practices not covered by the proposed rule.

When they were issued in June, the proposal and RFI had comment deadlines of, respectively, September 14, 2016 and October 14, 2016.  In the version published in the Federal Register, the comment deadline for the payday loan proposal is extended to October 7.  However, October 14 remains the comment deadline for the RFI in the published version.
