Woodstock Institute is joining other consumer advocate groups in signing onto a letter to the House Appropriations Committee opposing certain provisions of the FY2024 Financial Services and General Government (FSGG) appropriations bill. These provisions would undermine important consumer protection agencies’ ability to “safeguard the financial health and safety of working families,” including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

These attacks on the CFPB come as the agency is currently the subject of a Supreme Court case that threatens to unravel the entire agency, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau v. Community Financial Services Association of America. Woodstock is part of the coalition defending the CFPB from these right-wing attacks and recently signed onto an amicus brief calling for the Supreme Court to uphold the CFPB’s funding structure.
