Experian Number:


The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is a federal government financial regulatory agency created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act. The agency has faced criticism for its structure and funding arrangements, which operate outside of normal Congressional appropriations and seem to restrict the President’s ability to control the agency.

The Acting Director of CFPB is Mick Mulvaney, who simultaneously serves as Director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Trump administration. Kathy Kraninger has been appointed to take over for Mulvaney; as of August 2018, her nomination is being considered by the U.S. Senate.
