Republicans won't budge on CFPB's structure

NBC News has more on Senate Republicans' fight to reshape the structure and operation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau:

Until Obama agrees to changes in the CFPB structure to make it a multi-member board akin to the Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulatory agencies, Republicans said they will block a confirmation vote on Cordray. They also want to subject the CFPB to annual appropriations by Congress. Right now the law allows CFPB to draw its funds directly from the Federal Reserve.
