Alexander Hecht, Vice President of Government Relations for ML Strategies, will serve as a panelist on a telebriefing entitled “CFPB Tackles SBREFA --What to Expect.” The telebriefing takes place on April 17 at 1:00 EDT and is sponsored by Law Seminars International.
Mr. Hecht will be focusing his remarks on the Congressional intent behind Section 1100G of the Dodd-Frank legislation, a provision designed to ensure that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) convenes small business advocacy review panels, prior to proposing new rules that would impose a significant economic impact on small firms. This provision also specifies that during the rulemaking process, the CFPB must consider the economic impact that its rules will have on the “cost of credit” for small businesses.
Mr. Hecht assists clients with their legislative and regulatory needs on a wide range of issues, with a focus on health care and regulatory policy. Prior to joining ML Strategies, he served for over six years as Chief Counsel for Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-ME) on the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship.
