MACA Submits Comments to Maryland Commission of Financial Regulation

As a follow-up to September's forum in Baltimore for Maryland Collection Agency Licensees to review current regulations and statutes pertaining to the industry, MACA submitted formal comments to the Commissioner of Financial Regulation.

ACA’s Director of State Affairs Andy Madden, who participated in the forum worked closely with MACA in crafting the formal comments which focus on the impact regulations have on small businesses and the potential impact of the CFPB’s imminent debt collection rulemaking.  At the forum, Madden called for increased clarity, uniformity and the modernization of outdated regulations.

The September 22 forum was a continuation of an initiative launched by Gov. Larry Hogan to examine Maryland regulations, and find ways to become more efficient and responsive to the citizens and businesses of this state.
