1 Refer to Pub. L. 115-174, 132 Stat. 1296 (2018), section 104(a) (codified at 12 USC 2803). The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a 2019 HMDA rule to extend the temporary threshold for reporting data about open-end lines of credit and implement and further clarify the partial exemption created by the 2018 Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. Refer to 84 Fed. Reg. 57946 (October 29, 2019). The CFPB then issued a 2020 HMDA rule to adjust the thresholds for reporting data about closed-end mortgage loans and the thresholds for reporting data about open-end lines of credit. The CFPB amended Regulation C (12 CFR 1003) by revising thresholds for reporting data and clarifying partial exemption. Refer to 85 Fed. Reg. 28364 (May 12, 2020).
