Associations Ask Bureau to Re-submit PRA Request for Approval of a Consumer Survey of Overdraft Disclosure Forms (9/30/15)
In a joint comment letter to the Bureau, ABA and four other associations urged the Bureau to provide a draft survey instrument as part of the Bureau's request for comment on its proposal to conduct a national survey of consumers' experience with overdraft disclosure forms. Despite OMB guidance stating that agencies must provide the public with a draft survey instrument at the time the agency seeks comment on its information collection request, the Bureau failed to provide a draft survey.
