CRL Supports Nomination of Jason Furman as Chair of Council of Economic Advisers


Center for Responsible Lending
June 10, 2013

Jason Furman recognized early on that poor regulatory oversight of abusive practices in subprime mortgage lending was a leading contributor to the economic crisis. He has since spoken out strongly about the importance of consumer safeguards to a sound financial system. We urge the Senate to confirm Mr. Furman to lead the Council of Economic Advisers.
