Witnesses testified about the Obama administration’s proposal to create a new agency responsible for consumer protection with regard to financial products and services. The Consumer Financial Protection Agency would have the power to write rules affecting the financial-services industry, educate consumers on financial matters and conduct research on consumer disclosures and other matters.
