On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, the Senate passed a measure to repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (“CFPB's”) 2013 guidance prohibiting discrimination in auto lending (the “2013 Guidance”). In 2013, the CFPB issued a bulletin regarding compliance with the fair lending requirements of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (“ECOA”) and its implementing regulation, Regulation B, for indirect auto lenders that permit dealers to increase consumer interest rates and that compensate dealers with a share of the increased interest revenues. The 2013 Guidance noted that that some indirect auto lenders had policies that permitted auto dealers to mark-up rates and that compensated dealers for those mark-ups. As a result of the policy incentives and the discretion permitted in the mark-ups, the CFPB concluded that there was a significant risk of pricing disparities on the basis of race, national origin, and other prohibited bases, in violation of ECOA.
