Pennsylvania recently enacted certain provisions implementing the federal Consumer Financial Protect Act (CFPA). The provisions authorize the Pennsylvania Attorney General to, upon request by the Pennsylvania Department of Banking, bring a civil action against certain entities to enforce the federal CFPA or its corresponding regulations. The provisions also authorize the Department of Banking to receive reports of examination by the CFPB and to enter into agreements with the CFPB regarding the coordination of examinations. Additionally, the provisions address the Department of Banking's jurisdiction and the scope of federal preemption. These new provisions are effective December 23, 2012.
