ALTA to Participate in CFPB and Small Business Administration Panel on RESPA/TILA Forms and Other Upcoming Rules

March 19, 2012

Tomorrow, ALTA will participate in two separate panels discussing CFPB rulemakings, including the new RESPA/TILA forms.

A panel, (being) hosted by CFPB, will focus entirely on the RESPA/TILA forms rule. In the wake of this month's SBREFA panel, the Bureau is holding a roundtable to get feedback from industries and trade associations that did not have participants serving on the SBREFA panel. This will be a good opportunity for ALTA to ask questions about issues that are not directly small business related. If you have any suggested questions for ALTA to ask at the meeting, please contact ALTA Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs Justin Ailes at

The Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy is also hosting a panel tomorrow to talk about the RESPA/TILA SBREFA panel and upcoming CFPB rules that will go through the same process. The meeting will afford ALTA the opportunity to provide feedback about the SBREFA process and discuss our concerns with the CFPB's upcoming rulemakings regarding electronic fund transfer notices and supervision of larger participants in the debt collection and consumer reporting industries. If you have any suggested questions or comments for ALTA to bring up at the meeting, please contact ALTA's Legislative and Regulatory Counsel Steve Gottheim at
