CFPB revises, delays remittance proposal
Dec. 21, 2012 – The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Friday issued a revised proposal on its international remittance rule that would delay implementation of the entire remittance rule to 90 days after the changes are finalized.

NAFCU will continue to seek further improvements in the rule and will issue a
