Tom Hudson and Eric Johnson publish compliance trends for 2019 in RV News
In the January edition of RV News, Eric Johnson and Tom Hudson discuss several regulatory trends they advise could be coming for 2019. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, under new director Kathy Kraninger, could write fewer rules, continue to handle issues in the supervision process but not in enforcement, and extend ongoing emphasis on dealer add-on products. Eric and Tom also expect to see more compliance sweeps and enforcement activity from the Federal Trade Commission on dealer print, TV, radio and YouTube ads that use "mouse type" disclosures.
