Contact Senator Schumer Today To Save Dealer-Assisted Financing
NADA has learned that Senator Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) may introduce legislation with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to repea l the dealer exemption from the jurisdiction of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Without this exemption, the future of dealer-assisted financing would be in serious jeopardy.

If the dealer exemption is repealed, your ability to offer auto financing for your customers will either be regulated out of existence or severely constrained.


Call Senator Schumer today at 202-224-6542 and tell him:

You strongly oppose him sponsoring legislation to repeal the auto dealerexemption from the CFPB.

When speaking to the Senator’s staff, please make the following points:

• Congress exempted auto dealers from the jurisdiction of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB ) because dealers are not banks. Dealers do not finance or underwrite auto loans , they sell and service automobiles .

• Dealers are already regulated by the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Reserve Board , the Department of Justice, the New York state attorney general, as well as the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs.

• Eliminating dealer-assisted financing would lessen competition in the $905 billion auto finance marketplace, and result in higher in terest rates for all consumers.

For more in formation on the auto dealer exemption, please visit https://www.nada .org/cfpb/, email, or call NADA Legislative Affairs at 202-547-5500. Please report back to NYSADA (518) 463-1148 and speak to Christine (ext. 203) or on your communication to Senator Schumer’s office . Thank you.
