WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)   - expected incoming Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, released a statement after President-Elect Biden announced the nomination of Rohit Chopra to be Director of the Consumer Financial Protection  Bureau (CFPB).

“Rohit Chopra is a bold and experienced choice to serve as the next Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. In his current role as FTC Commissioner, Mr. Chopra has taken on big tech companies for invading our privacy and breaking antitrust laws, as well as manufacturers that have lied about their products being made in the USA. I am confident that Mr. Chopra will not only return the CFPB to its central mission – protecting consumers – but also ensure the agency plays a leading role in combatting racial inequities in our financial system.”
