The proposals would change the CFPB's leadership structure from a director to a board; subject its budget to the congressional appropriations process; establish pay parity for employees with other regulators; strengthen the review authority of the Financial Stability Oversight Council over the agency; prohibit it from collecting consumer data without consent; and provide consumers with a disclosure of the information the agency does collect. The banking panel began debating the measures on Wednesday.
