AFSA SGA June Whitepaper is Posted

The June State Government Affairs white paper is an update of our evergreen white paper examining federal regulation of financial institutions. Consumer advocates often characterize certain financial products as "unregulated” in their push for new state regulations. This is simply not true.

The white paper is available under the State Resources section of AFSA’s website.
