The proposed rule would identify a nonbank market for international money transfers and define “larger participants” of this market that would be subject to the Bureau’s supervisory authority. We support this proposal. However, we strongly encourage the CFPB not to limit this supervisory application to providers of international money transfers, but to include providers of all money transfers – including domestic transfers.
