Marisa Calderon, president and CEO of Prosperity Now

We firmly believe that the CFPB’s mission is essential for the communities we represent who are disproportionately at risk from unreliable, unsafe, or discriminatory financial products.”
— Marisa Calderon, president & CEO of Prosperity Now

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, May 16, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Marisa Calderon, president & CEO of Prosperity Now, issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) funding doesn’t violate the constitution:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a resounding victory for the American people, especially historically underrepresented communities. The 7-2 ruling made clear that the CFPB’s funding authority is constitutional, and its strong record of consumer protection will continue.

“We firmly believe that the CFPB’s mission is essential for the communities we represent who are disproportionately at risk from unreliable, unsafe, or discriminatory financial products.”
